About the network

The Crawley Down Support Network (CDSN) has been established to help for those who are particularly vulnerable during the current COVID-19 pandemic. The CDSN is a group of volunteers from our community who wish to help others through this difficult period. The CDSN is not a replacement for government services, healthcare services or any other authoritative body. You should always adhere to advice published by the government throughout the current pandemic.

The CDSN is a support network for those within our community who have nowhere else to turn. If you need to self-isolate, have no one to turn to for non-medical support, and are unable to order in the supplies you need using the internet the CDSN is here to assist.

Please help spread awareness of the network by putting a poster up in your window! Posters can be downloaded below:
