welshpool Community Angels

Providing Community Support during COVID-19

WHAT ARE WE ABOUT?

This group has been formed to try to ensure that every resident in Welshpool affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has access to what they need.

Whether you are isolated due to Covid-19 symptoms, aged-70 or over and in self-isolation, suffer with an underlying health condition, live alone or simply need to talk to someone we are here to help.

Individuals have been volunteering to become Community Angels and there will be at least one for your area ready to help us face this challenging time together. You are not alone.

Anyone self-isolating needs the security of knowing that someone is available by phone or email who can, if need be, act as a link with the outside world. Nobody should be suffering in lonely silence, or unable to have essential supplies delivered, because they can’t leave their home.
