child drinking milk and food

What is connect4communities?

connect4communities is a new initiative developed by Hampshire County Council and Isle of Wight Council in collaboration with partners, with funding from the Department for Work and Pensions.

The purpose of this programme is to support vulnerable families during the winter as the coronavirus pandemic continues and help ensure children and young people do not go hungry or without essential items.
