Resident information

There are a number of tasks we can carry out for you such as basic shopping, collecting prescriptions (we only need your full name and address), a friendly chat over the phone, or walking your dog. 

 

If you can, please order large monthly shops on-line, as our volunteers’ safety is a prime concern and the less time they spend in supermarkets, the better. Having said that, we recognise that doing so can be difficult at the moment or you may nor have access to the internet so we deal with each request on a personal basis. All our volunteers have gloves and will soon have masks to ensure the best possible hygiene for your shopping deliveries. Payment for shopping is negotiated between yourself and the volunteer.

 

We are not here to pick up a daily newspaper as this puts our volunteers at too much risk for a non-essential item.

 

Many of our area captains are still working from home and are busy with their own work so please everyone be patient. If you do not get a response from your area captain within a reasonable amount of time, please get in touch with one of the central coordinators and they will help you. 

If you need assistance or know someone who does please complete this form

Add details  of the person in need of assistance and we will forward this to the relevant area captain who will contact you shortly to arrange assistance.

IMPORTANT If you are an area captain, please use the members area support request as this will go directly to you.
