Here are a few suggestions on how you can help your local community:
Think of others, consider your actions and be kind: People in every community will face the challenges of Coronavirus in some way – from needing basic provisions to help whilst they are unwell.
Connect and reach out to your neighbours: As self-isolation increases, we need to find new ways to stay connected and check in on one another for our physical and mental wellbeing. Share phone numbers and other contact methods and stay in touch.
Make the most of local online groups: Keep up-to-date, share information and be a positive part of your local community.
Support vulnerable or isolated people: Different groups in our communities are at increased risk and social isolation and loneliness are key concerns for all ages. There are things you can do like volunteering for local support services or donating to food banks to help.
Share accurate information and advice: Support anyone who may be anxious about Coronavirus. Signpost them to the correct advice from Public Health England and encourage people to follow the correct hygiene practices.
