Hi, Lisa Varty here, welcome the Derbeian Corona outreach page. I’ve set this page up to help the people of Derby and Derbyshire who are self-isolating for 12 weeks under Boris Johnson’s instructions that those over 70 or with health conditions should do so. I myself am having to self-isolate due to health issues but I’m lucky I have family and friends who are helping me out, and I can still work because I’ve always worked from home at first the idea of self-isolation was quite daunting, but after speaking to my family and making sure I have a good support network so I should be ok, but some of you won’t be so lucky so I’m trying to do my part during the Corona Virus Crisis by setting up this outreach page and Facebook group to help those who don’t have anyone to help. The idea of this page is to create a bulletin board for those that don’t have anyone to rely on to help get essential items and medication delivered, hopefully those of us who can go out to shops and pharmacies will step up and help get food and medication to those in need. There will be a Facebook group where people can post what they need and for others who can help to reply to posts, people in need who don’t have access to Facebook can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send a text to 0771 4981899 and I will post a bulletin directly on to this page and on Facebook with a ticket number where people who want to help can then text or email to offer their help. Those asking for help must make sure items are paid for before a volunteer picks them up and those delivering essential items must leave them on the doorstep and have no physical contact with the person they are helping.
Also on this page I will be posting regular updates from official government websites regarding the situation and would like any local shops or business that offer delivery services of essential items to get in touch so I can create a database for those in isolation so they are aware of the services available their area as it’s getting harder to secure delivery shops with online supermarkets so if you are a pub delivering food, Butchers, Green Grocer or any other kind of essential item supplier please get in touch (Free Advertising!).
