Community Safety

Getting community support

If you want to help others in the community, you can also register your interest on our website. If you are part of a group that is helping others in the community, you can promote the work you're doing in your area on our website too.

Please be careful of accepting help from someone you don’t know – there are lots of scams at the moment. If you don’t feel comfortable don’t accept the help. There are lots of community groups who are working with the council and Ashford Volunteer Centre to help those in need. There are also technology scams around, including some claiming to be from the government offering you a tax refund, or that you must pay a fine for leaving your house more than once a day. If you are suspicious about any messages you receive, please delete or ignore them.
