Coronavirus (COVID-19)

A simple way to coordinate help for those self-isolating

Create a 'support crew'

For people who are vulnerable, such as the elderly and those with compromised immunity, self-isolation is a necessary precaution.

We can work together to support them through this period – even when we can’t have close contact.

Use Gather My Crew to bring together a friendship group, a family, social club or neighbourhood to support the more vulnerable.

And don’t forget those in your street who may not have a support network… Get some neighbours together and create a ‘Street Crew’ to support them too.

It's as easy as...

1. identify help needed

2. invite people to lend a hand

3. 'support crew' select how they help

Ways you can help...

Whether you decide to set up a formal ‘support crew’ or just want to do something kind for a person you know, here are a list of ideas that you can start with. Even small acts of kindness can have a big impact during these times.

 

– Drop off bread and milk

– Leave thoughtful ‘food offerings’, such as baked goods or fresh fruit

– Drop over books, games or movies

– Collect deliveries and/or parcels from the post office

– Post letters and/or parcels

– Collect medications

– Collect ‘non essential’ items – such as extra wool for a knitting project or paint for a painting

– Organise regular skype calls or phone ‘check ins’ to provide social connection

– Walk the dog

– Drop off toilet paper

– Shop for fresh food

Create a 'Support Crew' now

It is important to remember that ‘this too shall pass’ – but we all need to be mindful of the vulnerable around us and work together to lessen the impact on them, on the health system and on each other.
