Milford on Sea Mutual Aid is a local group that has been set up to make life easier for everyone at this very difficult time. If you, or someone you know, are self isolating, please get in touch. We have volunteers in every street who are ready to support any household where people are isolating for any reason, including anyone who the NHS says are at higher risk because they
- Have an underlying health issue
- Are pregnant
- Are over 70
- Have symptoms of the virus.
Our volunteers are happy to help by collecting shopping and prescriptions, or telephoning for a chat. If you can’t get a supermarket slot, or don’t like ordering on the internet, our brilliant volunteers will get what you need. We have special arrangements with the local shops and the pharmacies. We have our own Rapid Response team if you need a prescription urgently. Please don’t be afraid to ask! As we have over 160 volunteers they have plenty of time to help you.
Apart from the practical difficulties of this new way of life, we are all affected by not spending time with our families and friends. Isolation can be very stressful, so we have launched Cheerful Chats! Lots of people are phoning other people, most of whom they don’t already know, to have a good chat. The internet is a lifeline, but nothing can replace the sound of a human voice. Why not join? email@example.com
Please let us know if there is anything else you would like us to include on our website. Stay safe at home.
