BERT - Community Immunity

18 March 2020

 
A BERT Initiative: COMMUNITY IMMUNITY

Due to the escalating Coronavirus outbreak, BERT is launching our “Community Immunity” scheme. Do you have a neighbour who is over 70 or who has health concerns? Do you even know? Now is your time to find out if the people you live near will struggle if they are quarantined. 

How can you help? 

  • Start talking – Find out if the people you live near may be facing exclusion in the coming weeks and see what their concerns are. Tap on a window – remember they may not want to answer the door!
  • Find out how you can help – Can you pick up a few extra bits when you pop to the shops? Can you offer to collect a prescription? Can you walk their dog with yours?
  • Volunteer to become a BEV – We’ve developed a new “CoronaBEV” category for those who wish to offer their assistance to help people in their local community while Coronavirus is a threat. BERT will coordinate requests for assistance and see who is available to help.
We may not have a cure as yet but, with your help, we can create an Immunity in our Community to the disruption, hardship and isolation that restriction to movement may cause.

Get in touch! 

Want to Volunteer? – email bert.brockham@gmail.com.

Need help? Call 01302 GOBERT (01302 462378) or email bert.brockham@gmail.com
