Covid-19 - Five things you can do to help yourself and your community

Date: 

Monday, 23 March, 2020

 

  1. Keeping up to date and following the official advice
     
  2. Sharing only official information and guidance from trusted sources – not spreading rumour or panic
     
  3. Staying sensible – washing hands regularly, keeping physical distance from each other
     
  4. Thinking about what help you need or how you can help
     
  5. And making sure we’re keeping in touch with each other and keep our minds healthy

Help

Volunteering: We are aware that many people want to help older and more vulnerable people in their local area. We are directing those who wish to help their community to contact Central Surrey Voluntary Action (CSVA) who are registering a pool of potential volunteers who may be able to assist voluntary organisations across Epsom and Ewell during the current pandemic. Please see - www.centralsurreyvoluntaryaction.co.uk 
Telephone 01372 722911

If you’re looking for help, Surrey County Council have set up a new community helpline to direct you to services that can help during the coronavirus pandemic.
Community Helpline number: 0300 200 1008 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm)
This community phone line is here for two things:

  • To help direct residents who need support, such as picking up shopping, prescription collections or having someone who can be a telephone friend, to services who can help.
  • To provide advice on where to register your offer of help to support your community.

It is not a medical helpline. For any medical enquiries you need to visit https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19/.
