We know that this is a particularly unsettling time for those over the age of 70 and for those who are unwell, or have had to self-isolate.
Whilst many have family and friends who can rally round, we know that not everyone does. A considerable amount of work is being done right now by local charities, the Councils, and the volunteer groups that have emerged in recent days to ensure that they can provide everyone with the support they need, and also to make the best use of the people who have offered help.
Several of those organisations, including representatives of the Residents’ Association in E&E, have met to coordinate those activities and make them safe, and those involved will send round more details later in the week of what help is needed and what to do if you need help.
In the meanwhile please make your neighbours your first port of call to make sure that they are OK.
