Local action on Covid-19

Befriending Service Takes Off

So many residents are going through some very tough and challenging times and they are enormously grateful for the positive spirit all members of the befriending team are showing.  We will get through this unprecedented period and I applaud the remarkable way our community has responded to this unparalleled situation.  Please find below a summary of the befriending service.  It is quite incredible what you all have achieved in just 3 weeks. We now have nearly 200 residents benefiting from the Action Group and over 130 of these will be contacted by a befriender in the coming week.
