Read our guidelines to ensure you're protecting yourself

Are you unable or concerned about leaving your home because of Covid 19/Coronavirus? Do you need someone to run errands – do your shopping, post mail or pick up a prescription etc. Or just someone to talk to if you’re feeling isolated? We can help!

We can help! We are a group of local residents who are happy to assist in any way we can.

 

If now, or in the next few months, you need help from us, please contact our dispatcher volunteers listed at the back.

 

We won’t ask or demand anything of you in return, we just believe in helping each-other in a time of difficulty.

If you would like to speak to us, or want to ask for help, please contact the volunteer for your area. See here and we can talk about what we can do to support you.
