A group of villagers have started a community support group called Your Scholes to provide support to people in need during the current coronavirus crisis.
The group has three main aims:
- to ensure the most vulnerable in the community can access basic resources, such as food and medicine
- the health and wellbeing of local people is maintained
- people in the village are empowered to support one another
To enable this to happen, the group is working with local charities to ensure people’s basic needs are met, and with the people of Scholes to support your health and wellbeing.
Your Scholes is recruiting local volunteers and allocating them to people who need help with shopping and getting medicine. It’s also offering telephone befriending and resources on the website such as lists of local food suppliers who deliver to Scholes.
