Covid-19 Community Response - Hemyock
The Blackdown Support Group, in conjunction with the Blackdown Practice, Hemyock Parish Council, local Churches and the Blackdown Healthy Living and Activity Centre are seeking to co-ordinate and support community response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

We would like to identify a small number of Volunteer Co-ordinators who can be a central point of contact for people offering or requiring assistance in their immediate local area. The Co-ordinators would hold lists of contact details and be able to match helpers with neighbours who need assistance. They would also be a point of contact for our organisations to refer people to.

Many groups like this are being established across the Blackdowns and beyond which is fantastic. Where they exist we will make contact and work with those groups, endeavouring to facilitate contact between neighbours both online and offline whilst keeping everyone safe. Where they do not exist we will seek to roll out similar schemes.

We feel very strongly that keeping things as small and as local as possible reduces safeguarding risks for everyone involved.

If you are able to act as a Volunteer Co-ordinator for your immediate local area or you have already set up a scheme of this nature we would love to hear from you.

Thanks in advance for your support and community spirit.
