Pop-up Good Samaritans and community groups keen to get involved in the fight against the Coronavirus are being urged to make themselves known to the Northamptonshire COVID-19 Community Resilience team, to ensure there is adequate support across the county for people in at risk groups, those living alone and those self-isolating from COVID-19.
Since the crisis began to unfold, countless groups have emerged and individuals have come forward to help in the effort to get essential supplies to those people who are having to self-isolate.
As social distancing measures increase and the public are urged to stay at home, these groups and individuals play an increasingly important role in keeping our most vulnerable people safe and stocked up with medications and supplies.
Now emergency planners from the county’s coronavirus System Co-ordination Centre are urging these groups to come forward to register themselves, in order to ensure that they receive up to date information and access to critical supply chains. Groups can register by either completing an online form at https://www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/coronavirus-updates/Pages/volunteer-to-help-those-in-need-coronavirus.aspx or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
