Our Local Care in the Community Helpline:    0121 318 5138   email:      Worthencovid19aid@gmail.com  We can help with food shopping, prescription collections and people to talk to.

We are concerned that there are a growing number of people in our communities who are self isolating in their homes, or will be, for a variety of reasons.

If you are self isolating please be assured that whist we are aware that many of those affected have a network of family, friends and neighbours to help or may already be receiving services from an appropriate charity or other agency.  Cllr Ed Potter has signposted a number of social media platforms where assistance is being offered.

You can contact your clerk or local councillor.  Details can be found under our committee heading.
