COVID-19 LATEST INFORMATION

CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 UPDATE 27.03.2020

Tickton & Routh Parish Council continues to work with East Riding of Yorkshire Council and remains focused on help to those who most need it at this extraordinary time.

A few days ago, Central Government, via the National Health Service (NHS) identified around 1.5 million people across the country that are at very high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 because of specified underlying health conditions. These are people of all ages, some of whom live in the East Riding. Many of the people which the government wish to ‘shield’ will have the support of family, friends and neighbours. For those who don’t have that support, we are encouraging people to reach out to the community networks which are being set up to discuss their needs. East Riding of Yorkshire Council is tackling this by working in partnership with the HEY Smile Foundation, a charity which works closely with the private, public and voluntary sectors.

We are very much aware of the great work and community spirit that has been established over the last few weeks by community groups and residents in response to the pandemic. It is really humbling for all of us to see what communities have achieved and the support structures that have been put into place in such a short period of time. Thank-you for what you have done.

 

IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE

A dedicated contact centre specifically for residents who don’t have that network of carers, family, friends, neighbours or local community groups to call upon is now up and running.

CONTACT CENTRE DETAILS:
9am-9pm Monday-Friday
9am-6pm Saturday and Sunday
Tel: (01482) 393919
Email: covid@eastriding.gov.uk

This contact centre is not for emergencies or for those vulnerable residents who are registered within the ERYC adult care system. The people we want to help through this service are those who may be in self-isolation and need medicines or essential food collecting, pets that need walking or are maybe feeling lonely and would like to be able to chat with someone.

If you need to be signposted for any additional support, please contact Tickton & Routh Parish Council: https://www.ticktonandrouth.org.uk/ 07563 155095 / Email: info@ticktonandrouth.org.uk

 

HOW CAN GROUPS HELP?

Community Groups & Voluntary Groups
We encourage any community or voluntary groups, along with those groups set up on social media channels, to register their details on https://coronavirus.beecan.org/. This website is hosted by the HEY Smile Foundation and the aim is to build up a detailed database of organisations that can work alongside HEY Smile Foundation and build resilience when helping those in need. Many groups have registered already, but the more the better. Guidance on how to register can be found in this video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2Xy2Yd0TFs&feature=youtu.be .

 

HOW CAN INDIVIDUALS HELP?

Individuals
Individuals cannot register on the beecan.org website but we encourage people to register at https://www.goodsamapp.org/NHS to become one of the new NHS Volunteer Responders. These volunteer responders will carry out tasks such as delivering medicines from pharmacies, driving patients to appointments, bringing people home from hospital and making regular telephone calls to check on people isolating at home.

 

COMMUNITY HUBS

Community Hubs are being set up in locations across the East Riding, in Anlaby, Beverley, Bridlington, Driffield, Goole, Holme-on-Spalding-Moor, Hornsea, Pocklington and Withernsea. These are not open to the public but are a place where volunteers can co-ordinate their help and support for the surrounding area.
