If you need practical help during the COVID-19 crisis please contact Alcester Community Resilience:
Helpline: 07707 598379 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Alcester Community Resilience is also on Facebook
A team of 25+ volunteers from Great Alne are ready and waiting to help you with shopping, picking up prescriptions, dog walking or simply being a friendly voice at the end of the phone. PLEASE, do not struggle. If you need any help, just call 07707 598 379 where someone will be happy to access the support network. If you are currently helping neighbours/friends outside of this support network, we urge you to share this number with them anyway. Should you suddenly be unavailable to help, they will still have some support.
We strongly recommend looking at the following website to ensure you are up to date with all of the latest guidance and advice: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
A wealth of information can be found on here, including:
- How to protect yourself and others
- Employment and Financial Support
- School closures, education and childcare
- Business and self-employed
- Healthcare workers and carers
In addition, https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ is a very useful resource.
Warwickshire County Council
Warwickshire County Council have produced an 8-page booklet highlighting access to key council services along with guidance about how to stay safe during COVID-19. The booklet can be downloaded by clicking the link on the right hand side of this page. It is called 'Let's do the right thing for Warwickshire'.
Great Alne Parochial Charity
Money Worries? We fully appreciate the financial strain current circumstances may be putting upon people. The Great Alne Parochial Charity can provide cash quickly and with the minimum of fuss to meet all kinds of urgent needs of a one-off nature. There are no restrictions on what help can be given. The money would be a grant not a loan. There would be no need to pay it back.
If you or someone you know needs financial assistance we would very much like to hear from you. Please phone Adrian (764261), Geoff (488405), Ian (488492) or Judy (488501) and they will see what they can do to help. All calls will be treated in strictest confidence.
We have been made aware of local businesses that are offering home delivery or no-contact collection. A list is provided here.
If you have any other questions, please email the Clerk, Joanne Bullingham at: email@example.com or 07833 790 375 or via the 'Great Alne Parish Council' Facebook group.
