Wiltshire Wellbeing Hub opens
We have set up a dedicated hub to support the most vulnerable residents during the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
The Wiltshire Wellbeing Hub is available to anyone who is struggling during this difficult time, such as people who are shielding or self-isolating and don’t have a support network around them or know where to get help.
Our team can help provide support but also signpost people to where additional help is available in their local area – with hundreds of community groups set-up across the county providing invaluable assistance.
***Emergency Relief Fund***
The Alice Combes Trust supported by The Lord Arundell of Wardour Charitable Trust are today launching an emergency food relief fund for residents of the following parishes:
Tisbury, West Tisbury, Wardour, Donhead St Andrew, Donhead St Mary, Semley and Ansty
The fund is limited and we will not be able to help everyone in financial need at this time.
We are aware of the help that the government is giving to people already receiving benefits, the help the utility companies are providing and the support for employers to pay their employees during the lockdown.
We are also aware of a significant impact on the self employed in our community whose work has stopped and who may not receive any help until June or until they can get access to the benefits system. This may well have affected the overall household income making things difficult.
We are also aware of the amazing on-going effort by our neighbours and organised volunteers across all of our communities for helping those across all of the communities we support who are vulnerable and isolated.
There may well be many other situations that we are not aware of.
What we have will be distributed through an arrangement we have made with the following local shops/suppliers:
Family Meat Packs, Vegan & Vegetarian Packs - (Downers, Tisbury High Street) & (Bob Palmer)
Wiltshire Game Tisbury Station Yard
Fishmongers - Tisbury High Street
The fund is not huge and so we need to get this to those most urgently in need and therefore we need anyone wanting to access this fund to complete a simple online application (that takes less than three minutes to complete) that will assist us to prioritise.
We want this to happen in days and not weeks.
Please spread the word to your contacts and neighbours who may not be on the internet or have no access to Facebook. They can call us 01747 871258.
