WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT YOU
OUR SUPPORT NETWORK CAN HELP AT THIS DIFFICULT TIME
If you are in self isolation due to illness or because you are considered high risk or vulnerable, we can help you with your daily needs, from grocery deliveries, prescription collections, dog walking, or chats on the phone to help you feel connected and reduce the loneliness you may feel.
WHAT WE CAN DO:
Get shopping for you (you will pay us on delivery)
Walk your dog
Fetch your newspaper
Chat to you on the phone
Anything else within reason that we can help you with.
If you need something we can’t provide, we will help put you in touch with organisations that can, including organisation like NOMAD food bank for those who are experiencing financial hardship.
Care is being taken to prevent spreading the virus. Volunteers will not have personal contact with anyone and will follow all current social distancing guidelines.
We are using a very local network of volunteers to help to build ongoing community links. Most of the help you receive will come from one of your direct neighbours – someone living in your street or very close by. You may even know them already (if this is a problem for you for any reason please do let us know). By operating in this way, we hope that we can help you to feel safe and confident in the support you are receiving.
We are aware of many other, more localised, support groups and want to work with these to ensure no one is missed out. If you are being supported by another group, please register with us so that we can connect with that group and work with them to ensure that no person is left out or in need.
For further information including local news, updates from local businesses, community discussion and more please visit our Facebook page. If you need help that you do not feel we are able to cover, please do take a look at our useful guide, 'Where can I get Help?'
