Mileham Mutual Aid

This website and community aid initiative has been organised by Mileham Parish Council, via a sub-committee of Mileham residents.

The aim of the group is to put people in touch with each other - those who need assistance and those who are willing and able to provide help within Mileham during the current pandemic. It is important to recognise that with limited resources we need to focus on the most vulnerable people.

If you are capable of all normal activities (e.g. shopping, posting letters) then we'd ask that you carry on following government guidelines. As long as you are healthy, you are very welcome to volunteer to support others in the village.

If you :-

i) are self-isolating as someone in the household has symptoms of Covid-19, can't go out at all and have not found alternative means of getting essentials (e.g. on-line shopping, friends, neighbours, relatives)

or

ii) are normally dependent on others but, due to Covid-19, can no longer cope - e.g. you don't have access to on-line shopping at all, or the person/carer who normally does your shopping is ill

then please register using the link or phone number below.

Any help available will be entirely dependent on the number of volunteers available, their capabilities and even whether or not they become ill. Consequently, until we've matched the number of volunteers with those who need help, we cannot guarantee anything. If you do not genuinely need help, then please don't register.

The type of help that may be available would be collecting food and/or medication and delivering it as far as the front door, or being part of a telephone/email support group for people confined to their homes. We will not be asking volunteers to enter your home under any circumstances, and will need to ensure that appropriate hygiene precautions are observed. This protects you as well as our volunteers.

We do not provide medical advice or counselling, although some useful links to official web sites can be found on the Useful Information page.
