Covid-19 advice Sevenoaks
- This advice is updated weekly normally on a Thursday
A voluntary scheme that supported residents in the first seven months of the pandemic is getting ready to help out again as we enter a second lockdown.
‘Care for our Community – Sevenoaks District’ was set up in March to support vulnerable people, including those shielding. Around 1,500 volunteers came forward helping those in need by collecting their shopping and prescriptions, having a friendly chat and more.
The scheme was stood down in the autumn as the transmission of the virus fell. But, volunteers are once again getting ready to do their bit as a second lockdown looms.
As the nation prepares to stay at home once again to limit the spread of the virus, anyone who needs help is being urged to sign up to the ‘Care for our Community' scheme. To request help, residents should visit www.sevenoaks.gov.uk/requesthelp or call the Council on 01732 227000.
