If you are self-isolating and are in one of the at-risk groups (over 70 or with underlying health conditions) we have mobilised a support team that can help you with:
Picking up shopping Posting / collecting mail Collecting medicines Urgent supplies A friendly chat Because of the spread-out nature of our community we have divided our volunteer recruits into "sub-areas" to facilitate assistance within a manageable distance / amount of households.
Below you will find a list of volunteers in your area who you can call on to help. In the first instance, please call a member of your area team but everyone below is willing to help so if you are feeling in need DON'T BE SHY and reach out by whichever way suits you best.
