Covid-19    Local Coordination and Support

It is essential for Parishes to hold a record of those who are performing coordination roles in the community during the current emergency in order to facilitate clear and rapid communication.
If you would like to help please contact the relevant area coordinator from the list below.

We are here to help if you are self-isolating or shielding; do get in touch with your local contact below if you need support - we can:

*Pick up groceries                  * Collect Prescriptions        * Post Letters     

* Make a friendly phone call    *Walk a dog                      * Run a simple errand

How it works:

  • The areas have been leafletted with contact numbers of volunteers for support in their local area.
  • When someone needs help, they ring one of the volunteer numbers.
  • The volunteer then posts the request (but not the specific details of the individual) on their WhatsApp group e.g. 'prescription needs to be picked up at Sonning Common pharmacy'.
  • A volunteer replies on the group to confirm they can fulfill the request and they are sent the person's details in a private message.
  • The volunteer then carries out the request safely -e.g. collects the prescription & delivers it to the individual's doorstep (ensuring they follow all the current Covid-19 safety advice re. social distancing, handwashing etc.).
  • To close the loop - the volunteer confirms on the main WhatsApp group that the request has been fulfilled.

If you want to help and you're not on WhatsApp and aren't able to download it to your phone, please do still contact the co-ordinators - phone and text still work!
