Penistone and Stocksbridge Coronavirus Volunteers
Over the past few days I have been contacted by so many of you asking how you could help. Thank you.
I've been thinking about how best to coordinate all these offers of support to make sure everyone in our community is kept safe over the coming weeks and months.
I will be working with my team, community leaders and groups across the constituency to link offers of help together with people that need help in a safe and secure way. People who are self-isolating should only volunteer to help with phone calls.
The sort of help we are likely to need will be collection and delivery of emergency supplies, phoning people who are self-isolating to make sure they're ok and not feeling too lonely and running small errands for people who cannot go out.
Things will change very quickly so what we are looking for is an offer to volunteer and by working together we'll begin to see what's needed most.
Thank you for thinking of getting involved - by working together we will help make sure everyone gets through this difficult time.
