Offering support to members in need of support whilst self-isolating
Whaley Bridge Covid-19 Mutual Aid Group want people to be responsible for 10 to 20 homes on the street where they live, throughout Whaley Bridge.
The criteria for becoming leader or deputy leader are:
a) you are not in the vulnerable category
b) no high risk factors
c) not currently self isolating
If people are in any of these 3 categories, but still want to help, then they are asked to ring people up to support them by phone.
The responsibilities of the leaders are:
a) to stay in touch with all your group of homes either by social distancing on door step or by phone.
b) to offer the services of dog walking / shopping / collecting prescriptions / posting mail / chatting.
Those who volunteer to be leaders will understandably have to prove their identity.
IF ANYONE WISHES TO VOLUNTEER IN THIS WAY EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org stating your name, address and willingness to help. The ‘mag’ in the email address stands for ‘mutual aid group’.
This is an example of the sort of leaflet that will be used.
