Community 1 smA group of local residents have started a Community Support Group to assist anyone who may find themselves needing to Self-isolate.
On Friday morning a small group met to get the ball rolling and within just a couple of hours over 250 people had registered as members on its new social media support page, As this is written it is heading towards 400.

What is offered:
As the Coronavirus spreads some may have difficulties in doing their shopping, collecting prescriptions, taking the dog out, or even needing a loo roll.

Whether it is yourself self-isolating or if you know someone else who needs support, a Facebook social media page is now available and a dedicated telephone line will come into use next week.

If you need some help, and also if you would like to volunteer please contact:

WHITCHURCH (HANTS) COMMUNITY SUPPORT

The telephone will be in use from next week – 0740 703 2131 (it will be announced when this goes live)

However, please note that this volunteer group cannot provide any medical/healthcare advice and does not have access to any medical professionals.
The published National Guidelines are available here:
NHS: CORONAVIRUS

There are also a number of other excellent local agencies that can help and which have a lot of expertise such as Whitchurch NeighbourcareAll Hallows Visiting Team and Age Concern. If any other groups or organisations are offering help they can promote their activities and contacts here.

A Poster/Notice has been produced which you can download here for display – all help in doing this would be much appreciated.
