Coronavirus: How to help your community
The coronavirus (Covid-19) is having a big impact on people. Of particular concern are those that have to self-isolate. By working together we can all help the most vulnerable in our community.
If you wish to help those self-isolating on your street, but are not sure who needs help, you can print off the card pictured and use it to get in touch with your neighbours. If you need some cards printing, just let me know and I can print some for you and drop them round.
If you are on Facebook there are a couple of groups that are supplying useful information, where people are offering support and also where you can ask for help:
- Worcestershire – Coronavirus Support – Helping Each Other
- Worcester(shire) Coronavirus Mutual Aid Group
If there are neighbours who you know that are self-isolating, please see if they need any help with food shopping or just someone to talk to.
Always remember to maintain good hygiene and keep a safe distance to avoid spreading any germs.

Community Response Campaign
Worcestershire County Council are developing a coronavirus community response campaign.
The aim of the campaign is to inform and to encourage people and communities about how they can help others during these current challenging times.
In coming days the county council will be promoting these messages across all of their networks and channels and with the help of their partners.
They will be developing more materials and showcasing them at WCC buildings, through our schools, in GP surgeries and via our Parish Councils.
We want these messages to go as far and as wide as possible so please share these with your local contacts and on your social media channels.
