This community network - Crich Area Covid-19 Mutual Aid - has come together to provide a coordinated response in Crich and South Wingfield Parishes to the measures being recommended by Government.
There are over 100 volunteers in the network ready to help the residents of Crich Parish and South Wingfield Parish. Things have been progressing at a rate of knots behind the scenes and we have already been helping residents that have been in touch through us directly.
Get help with shopping, meals, prescriptions, petcare, phone contact, post or just for a friendly chat.
There is also a lot of work going on behind the scenes on making sure we have safeguarding and data security processes and measures in place. The network aims to help people who are anxious, potentially isolated and in some cases vulnerable. We have been taking very seriously the need to put in place a safe, reliable and trustworthy voluntary network.
Thank you very much to the volunteers - we know there is a lot of work going on between neighbours, families and friends too. We are strong communities and we will all be there for each other through this crisis.
If you have any questions about any of this, please email email@example.com.
