Due to Coronavirus some of you are likely to be self-isolating. Over 70’s and those with underlying health issues are likely to be advised to stay indoors in the near future.
Your Parish Council is putting together a list of people willing to help and people in need of help. This information will be shared with trusted partners. We will then be able to offer co-ordinated assistance to those in need.
If you need help or are vulnerable please either telephone or email. Please have or send the following information:
Full name, address, telephone number(s) email address if you have one, tell us if you are unwell & self-isolating or staying indoors due to government advice.
Tell us how many other people are in your household and their situation.
Contact details for a close family member could also be helpful.
If you are able to help please tell us your full name, address, phone number(s) email address and what services you could potentially offer.
We hope to be able to offer help with shopping, collecting medicines, regular contact by telephone and other essentials.
If you are already looking after the needs of someone self-isolating then please let us know as we may be advised of their needs by someone else, we can then update our records accordingly.
Please avoid direct contact between helpers and those receiving assistance. Items should be left on doorsteps at pre-arranged times.
Do not hand over any money until you have had confirmation from the Council on who is helping you and until they have identified themselves. You will each have a pre-arranged safe word.
Never give anyone your bank details, bank card, chequebook or PIN numbers
