The Henfield Helpline & Helpers operate from the Henfield Haven and have been created in conjunction with all those who have kindly volunteered to help in the village. There are over 200 ‘Helpers’. We’d ask residents to be considerate of the fact these people are all volunteers. They will do everything they can to assist with immediate needs or provide a listening ear. We’d like to thank all those who have volunteered and already provided considerable assistance to people in need.
Please use our central number 01273 494420, or email to email@example.com, for any help you require with coronavirus.
