(Formerly Eccleshall Community Support Register)
For those self-isolating due to the Coronavirus.
A group of amazing volunteers have set up Eccleshall Cares, to help those in need of some support during this difficult time.
Anyone who wants to access this service can go to www.EccleshallCares.co.uk and fill out a simple form requesting assistance. This is all non-medical and non-contact support, to minimise as many risks as possible.
Their team of over 70 local volunteers are happy to help with all sorts – from collecting prescriptions, running to the shops and dropping on doorsteps, or even a chat on the phone if you’re feeling stressed or cut off. All financial transactions are cashless through our dedicated bank account, and all the services are 100% free with clients only ever paying the exact value of any items we may have had to purchase on their behalf.
The website is the easiest way to access the service, but the group are also contactable via email at admin@EccleshallCares.co.uk or Tel: 07534 914629.
As a new community initiative Eccleshall Cares is a project in development. As the project unfolds, their page will be updated and amended, so please do check back regularly.
Eccleshall Cares is, for the time being, a completely non-contact initiative. Volunteers must never enter the houses of the service users, nor expect them to open the door. Service users must not invite volunteers into their homes, nor should they feel the need to open their doors, even if it feels rude.
The service users must understand that the volunteers are not professionals and are not trained in any way, but are entirely representing themselves as individuals and members of the community. All users understand that volunteers are not acting for or on behalf of Eccleshall Cares, and are not governed by the Parish Council, or any other authority or official body. Eccleshall Cares is acting only as a directory, and a distributor of names and allocator of jobs, and we nor anyone associated with us guarantees or vouches for any individual. With this in mind, we would ask all our service users to be duly dilligent when dealing with members of the public you do not know.
