Good Neighbours

 
Now more than ever it’s important to be good neighbours.  You can help as much or as little as you feel able.  Simple gestures that show people you are thinking of them will be appreciated.  A wave at the window on your daily walk, making a picture with the kids or putting a teddy in the window for other children to spot, stepping outside on your doorstep to join the nation Carer’s clap.  It all shows that we are in this together, and we can all keep each other’s spirits up.

There are many ways you can go a step further and volunteer your time if you have it.  If you want to check in on neighbours and offer support informally here is a useful print out you can use to pop through their door.

Remember that you need to observe social distancing, especially when helping people who are self-isolating and vulnerable.   You must make every effort to shield them from the virus, and protect yourself as well.  Full information on this can be found here.

If you’d like to be part of the co-ordinated effort, information on volunteering formally or informally can be found here.

Reaching our communities

As we continue to inform our residents and workers across the borough in the best way we can of the range of information and advice available, we’re always looking for new ways in which we can reach our more hard to reach groups across Tameside.
