We, a group of local residents, would like to support the community that we live in and ensure that nobody is left isolated. We don’t ask for anything in return, we just believe in helping each other in a time of difficulty.

We are your local neighbours and not a professional body but are supported by the council.

A Note of Caution Regrettably there will be some who seek to exploit the situation created by the virus, both by individuals or organisations who offer to help. We would therefore urge everyone to be extremely vigilant for callers who appear at vulnerable individuals’ properties, especially those seeking payment for their services and help.
