Following today’s government announcement and the expected roll-out of the Test and Trace system, we wanted to share our streamlined ‘request for help’ and ‘offer to help’ platforms. If you are informed to immediately isolate, we want to make sure that you call on us so you have everything you need to stay isolated and stay safe.
With that in mind, we can announce our new referral system: Help Next Door (there’s a telephone number on there too 😊) This site has been developed in partnership with, and many thanks to the team at Help Next Door – a national volunteer support and community networking organisation.
To help us get ready for a possible increase in requests for help we are just having a ‘head count’ on our Volunteer groups, in light of the shifting sands we find ourselves in and…. WOW! So many of you are still beavering away quietly being amazing neighbours AND are happy to continue your great work! ♥️ THANK YOU!! ♥️
Please take a look at the Help Next Door site and what services are available, what opportunities there are to help and share this widely, to whomever you feel might benefit in Buxton and the surrounding areas!
We have incorporated PPE ordering through For the Love of Scrubs on there too. So everything is in one place! If you are an existing volunteer, there’s no need to ‘re-apply’ If you would like to join our neighbour volunteers and help with neighbour requests, or make PPE please let us know and register with us! Thank you 😊
What a long update! .. But I hope you will agree, it’s been worth it! 😘💚
