The Parish Council would like to ensure you have access to advice and guidelines to help and support you through these unprecedented times.
The links on this page are to signpost residents to the various sources of information and support available. It is very encouraging to know that there are so many community-minded villagers here in Broadbridge Heath, looking out for their neighbours and friends. We strongly encourage all residents to consider those in their surrounding homes who may appreciate some support at this time.

We will endeavour to continue to provide our Parish Council services to the community, and to help the residents of Broadbridge Heath to stay safe during these unusual, evolving times. These are uncertain and difficult times and our thoughts are with those affected and all the people working tirelessly to care for them.
