Village Coronavirus Support Group
- Are you unable to leave your home because of Coronavirus?
- Do you need assistance with everyday tasks or someone to talk to?
We are organising a way to get you the help you need and ask nothing in return. While we can only offer help within reason and in ways that helpers can also stay safe, we would like to match people who have expressed a need with neighbours who are willing and able to assist.
We have provided standard Covid-19/coronavirus information overleaf. If, however, for any reason you require medical advice regarding coronavirus, we urge you to use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service at https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or if you do not have internet access, ring NHS 111 from your telephone for assistance. If it is a medical emergency, dial 999.
Ways we might be able to help:
- A friendly phone call
- Picking up shopping and medication
- Arranging deliveries
- Posting mail
- Help topping up electric and gas key
- collecting pensions or prescriptions
- urgent supplies
Please text Brad (07415 104 716) or Pauline (07815 833 386) during daytime hours. Leave a message and Brad will make a record of your query—what you need and when you need it. Then he will try to find someone from our list of helpers who is willing and available to assist. As we are wholly dependent on volunteers within the community, we can’t guarantee that someone will be available immediately. But if you give us sufficient warning we will try to find someone who can assist.
Willing to help out?
If you are willing and able to help your neighbours in this time of need, please text Brad (07415 104 716) or Pauline (07815 833 386) during daytime hours and note how you would be willing to assist. Also note when you are available. Again, Brad will add to our list of helpers and match you with someone who has expressed a need.
