When the last Covid19 lockdown started in March, the government through the NHS instructed many individuals with underlying health problems to self-isolate.
At that time, Malpas Community Links recruited a team of volunteers and took action to support these specific individuals and others in our local community that requested our support.
During the current lockdown which is scheduled to run to the 2nd December, it is only people classed as being in a clinically extremely vulnerable category who are to receive a letter of advice from the NHS
We have many very self-sufficient and proud residents in our community, but we recognise that from time to time, we all need the support of others.
Notwithstanding the new social distancing rules, as a first step we would ask residents to "look in" on their near neighbours to see if they are well and if they require any assistance. We believe that this can be achieved without breaking any of the social distancing rules.
However, if you need help from Community Links we are here:
Contact us by telephone:
