What are we doing?

Please note the CRAB Helpline has now been closed due to fall in demand. Contact can still be made via email : contact@crabwhitwell.org

If local lockdown measures have to be put back in place, the helpline will be put back into service. Stay safe everyone



Community Response And Back-Up – Whitwell (CRAB Whitwell) was started by local volunteers in response to the Coronavirus crisis.

The aim is to provide information and services to our community and to support local businesses.

To date we have had over hundreds requests for help with a range of services and with the fantastic support of the residents and volunteers of Whitwell, the IOW Council and our Parish Council, CRAB Whitwell continues to quickly evolve the services it can offer. We are also working with our neighbours CRAB Niton and CRAB Chale, especially to help local businesses at this time.
