Thurrock Council in partnership with Stronger Together, Thurrock CVS and other local organisations are working together to safely coordinate support to residents in need and to help ensure voluntary work is carried out in a safe and co-ordinated way across the borough.
The priority of Thurrock Coronavirus Community Action is to help residents who have been contacted by Government and Public Health England in regards to shielding, these are residents who are at very high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and must stay at home and self-isolate for 12 weeks due to underlying health conditions.
If you fall into this category and have received a text or letter from the NHS this week please follow the link in the message and sign up for support. Volunteers for Thurrock Coronavirus Community Action will be in touch with these residents in due course to confirm their individual support needs.
For residents who do not fall into the shielding category but require additional help and support at this time, more information will be coming out from Monday on how to access help from Thurrock Coronavirus Community Action.
