As you maybe aware Herefordshire Council have been developing a Talk Community Covid Response where they are sending every household in Herefordshire (88k) a letter focussed on the vulnerable people and the support they will need outside of their existing network. They have a central coordination centre with a dedicated telephone line for vulnerable people and volunteers to contact them and they will then link them back into the community organisations. There is already 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 them with information of the community work being undertaken however there are some areas where they have little information, please do forward the team any community information on the email address below with the key coordinator.
The areas of support that will be coordinated are:
Picking up meds (DBS check needed)
Calling vulnerable people during this difficult time
People wishing to volunteer can register and vulnerable people needing support can register on the following link: https://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/covid19help, the dedicated telephone number will be fully live from Tuesday 24th March which is 01432 260027 and email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
