COVID-19 Support for Vulnerable People

Alert message sent 11/04/2020 20:08:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

The community response during the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation has been amazing, with hundreds of individuals, groups and organisations coming forward on the ground, and through social media, to offer support.

It’s great to see the community coming together to help each other in this way and in the words of our Neighbourhood Watch President 'crime doesn't flourish in communities that care.' Never has this been more important and there are many elderly and vulnerable people in our communities that will be be feeling particularly isolated, alone or struggling to support themselves currently that we need to look out for.

We can all play a part in supporting our elderly, vulnerable and more isolated neighbours and family members. The attached information leaflet provides details of helplines and routes to registering others as vulnerable. Please speak to those nearest to you, family or neighbours to ensure they are getting the help or support they might need and register them with the government support service if you feel that's needed.

Many support groups have been formed but as there is no way to validate some of these groups we would remind everyone to please exercise caution in sharing personal details with unknown people.

If you don't have a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your street already why not consider using this time to set one up, again a web address can be found on the attached leaflet.

We know many of you are already looking after each other in your community already and we know that the vast majority of our residents are complying with the current guidelines to help reduce the spread of the virus, to protect our NHS and help save lives. We are very grateful to you all for your support with this.
