Storrington Covid-19 Virus Community Support: an update

Coronavirus

Storrington Community Support Hub

The purpose of the hub is to support people who are unable to leave their homes and cannot get what they need.

If you are isolated due to coronavirus (COVID-19) the Volunteer Hub can help you with:

  • Picking up shopping
  • Picking up medication
  • A friendly phone call

The number to call to get help is 07514 118678. Support is available 9am to 5pm, every day EXCEPT 10th April (Good Friday) and 13th April (Easter Monday).

If you are vulnerable or know of somebody who is vulnerable, please let us know.

How it works:

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused difficulties for all of us – but it is especially problematic for people who are in self-isolation having developed symptoms of the virus or for reasons of poor health should not leave their home. Common difficulties may be those of obtaining food and getting prescription medicines from the pharmacy. The increased loneliness because of social isolation from friends and family can also be a serious issue. Home deliveries are available from some shops, but these services can be over-subscribed.  Not everyone is comfortable using online shopping.

It is for such people that the Community Support Hub serving Storrington and the surrounding area has been set up. Since Government restrictions on leaving our homes came into existence the Hub has been very active in supporting the people who are having real problems. A good number of people have asked for assistance and have been helped by the Hub.

If you (or someone you know) is in need of assistance during these difficult times then do not hesitate to get in touch with the Hub – the volunteers there are friendly and considerate and will do their best to help you out!

The Storrington Hub is managed by the Neighbourhood Wardens and facilitated by Storrington Community Partnership.
