You can spread the virus even if you don't have symptoms.

If you are concerned for yourself, family, friends or neighbours please see the link below for guidance from Government and the NHS https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response

Corona Virus is affecting us all in different ways, and this is likely to continue for some time. We also know that some of us will need much more support than others.

Here are some of the initiatives being organised locally to try to help each other cope in the next few months.

Neighbourhood networks

The most valuable contribution we can all make is to look out for our neighbours, friends and family. Groups are being formed of around 10-20 households who are in contact with each other and know if anyone needs particular assistance at a particular time, such as shopping or a reassuring phone call, each with a volunteer coordinator. If you would like to know if a group covers your area, or would like to help start one, please contact Jo Robbins 07834802940 or joanna@mytimecoaching.co.uk

Parish phone helpline/Email

The Brimscombe and Thrupp Parish Council has organised an Email and phone helpline that is staffed by volunteers 10.30-12.30 every weekday and covered by answerphone the rest of the time. Please use it to:

  • To find-out about other services being offered.
  • Ask for some additional support for yourself or a neighbour
  • To be put in contact with your neighbourhood network coordinator
  • To volunteer your services
  • If you just need to talk

Email: Communitysupport@brimscombeandthrupp-pc.gov.uk.

Gloucestershire's Community Help Hub

This is an on-line hub that is trying to connect those that need help and individuals, organisations and businesses able to provide help. You can register your details and the aim is to match those supplying and needing support. Contact https://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/gloucestershires-community-help-hub/

Government advice direct to your WhatsAppThe new free to use service aims to provide official, trustworthy and timely information and advice about coronavirus (COVID-19), and will further reduce the burden on NHS services. This will help combat the spread of coronavirus misinformation in the UK, as well as helping ensure people stay home, protect the NHS and save lives. The GOV.UK Coronavirus Information Service is an automated 'chatbot' service which will allow the British public to get answers to the most common questions about coronavirus direct from government.

The service will provide information on topics such as coronavirus prevention and symptoms, the latest number of cases in the UK, advice on staying at home, travel advice and myth busting.The service will also allow the government to send messages to all opted-in users if required.

To use the free GOV.UK Coronavirus Information Service on WhatsApp, simply add 07860 064422 in your phone contacts and then message the word 'hi' in a WhatsApp message to get started.A set of menu options is then presented which the user can choose from and then be sent relevant guidance from GOV.UK pages as well as links to GOV.UK for further information.

Key messages:

  • People can now register to the county's community help hub by calling 01452 583519 Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 5pm, as well as online at gloucestershire.gov.uk/helphub
