Swale Borough Council has launched this appeal to support organisations that are helping the most vulnerable during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Swale Community Response is working to make sure that our vulnerable residents can stay safely at home and not put themselves at risk of catching coronavirus.
We’ve been working with local voluntary groups to help with food, prescriptions and other essential supplies.
All money raised will go directly to the voluntary groups that are helping us keep local vulnerable people safe.
What we'll deliver:
- Provide food for the community
- Pick up prescriptions for residents
- Provide other essential supplies
Why it's a great idea:
There are thousands of people across Swale who have been told they need to isolate at home for 12 weeks because they are more likely to need hospital treatment if they catch coronavirus.
Most have a network of support who can help with delivering food and essential supplies.
Unfortunately many don’t, which is where we, and a small army of volunteers, are stepping in to help.
The voluntary organisations helping us with food parcels, collecting shopping, and picking up prescriptions, are under huge pressure and need all of our support.
Steps to get it done:
- Raise funds to provide emergency support for vulnerable residents in the borough
