Wilford Support Team
Helping those who need a bit of extra help
We're a group of people in Wilford who have come together to support the community during the escalating Covid-19 situation. If you need help get in touch. If you can help please sign up.
We're currently offering to collect shopping for people, collect urgent supplies and have a chat. But if you need something else we'll do what we can for you.
If you can help in any way please get in touch
We've leaflets across the local community signposting what help we can offer. We now have over 150 people signed up to help with over 50 individuals requesting help that we've been able to match with volunteers willing to help.
The plan is simple, we match those needing help with those offering help. This can include delivering shopping, picking up prescriptions or having a friendly chat.
Please always follow the latest NHS Advice
And the answers to some FAQ's
To help those who have signed up to help here's some of the FAQ's
When will I be added to the Whatsapp group?
We've removed the Whatsapp group please now join https://www.facebook.com/groups/786546078534916/
We're only accepting those that have completed the form above first, so please do that.
Why haven't I been matched with anyone?
We currently have more volunteers than those needing help. Again a lovely problem to have. We've not forgotten about you.
Do I have to be in the Facebook group to help?
I've offered to help but I'm now ill or self-isolating should I let you know?
Yes please, we'll take you off the list until your back on your feet and help you in any way we can.
Who will contact me?
A member of the admin team Sophie Blaken, Pat Huxley or Wendy Cranefield.
Are you accepting donations of money or food?
We are accepting donations of food if you have an excess but please don't buy extra food for us to store until needed, it's more urgently needed in the shops and foodbanks right now.
We're not currently taking individual donations for money, we love that you are offering, and we'll let you know if that changes.
