Herefordshire County Council has sent every household in Herefordshire (88k) a letter focussed on the most vulnerable people and the support they will need outside their existing network, as part of its Talk Community Covid19 Response.
The areas of support are:
- Urgent supplies
- Picking up meds (DBS check needed)
- Pet walking
- Calling vulnerable people during this difficult time
For local help in Bishopstone, call two people living in the village – Anne Moore on 590616/07729 933039 and Sarah Keefe on 590352 (leave a message if no reply).
People needing support can also call the dedicated Talk Community telephone number on 01432 260027 and email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Amy Pitt, Assistant Director for the Talk Community Programme, has been coordinating the development of a dedicated telephone line for vulnerable people and volunteers to contact us and we will then link them back into the community organisations. There have already been some fantastic community responses happening and the council can support the infrastructure through this response and provide community resilience.
Many of the wards and parishes have provided us with information of the community work being undertaken however there are some areas where we have little information. Please do forward to Amy and the TC team any community information to this email address email@example.com.
