LOcal INitiatives

West Bridgford Community Helpers - A 'buddy system' initiative to pair volunteers with lonely and vulnerable people needing support during self-isolation.  Called Community Helpers, they have a Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/842219359579252/ and an email address [email protected].

West Bridgford Wire's Corona Virus page, with lots of useful local information, has unforthuastely been taken down by West Bridgford Wire - no idea why.

Council Community Hub - Now under Nottinghamshire Council - https://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/care/coronavirus/nottinghamshire-coronavirus-community-support-hub.

Some organisations are offering to supply food for people having to self-isolate.  The Feeding Nottingham initiative, has now finished but I THINK a similar system is now co-ordinated through Open Kitchens.  Guru Nanak's Mission continue their good work- https://www.facebook.com/GuruNanaksMissionNottm/.  Food banks are still operating and need donations more than ever.

Various Foodbanks and other charities are supported by local residents - https://www.ladybay.co.uk/charities.html.
