Alert message sent 17/04/2020 18:39:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch in Nottinghamshire

Gedling Borough Council is writing to 11,000 residents in the borough who are aged 70 or older who may need support due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The letter, sent jointly by the Leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor John Clarke, Deputy Leader Councillor Michael Payne and Chief Executive, Mike Hill is being delivered to all residents who have notified the council that they are over 70 through the electoral database. The letter will ask if the recipient is need of any support and will include contact details for the Nottinghamshire Community Support Hub and the council’s own Giving for Gedling webpage.

The letter is part of countywide effort to contact as many people as possible who may be self-isolating as part of the Government’s shielding initiative who may need non-medical support.

The council has also begun inducting volunteers to help deal with the potential increase in demand when the letters are sent. The council is offering help and support including wellbeing checks, befriending, dog walking, food and medicine collections and general support. Their recently opened Humanitarian Centre is also fully stocked and ready to deliver food parcels and over 500 people have signed up to volunteer.
