COVID 19 Update - 06/09/21

Community Support At the start of September 2021, CARESCO launched a new service Community Support . This team of volunteers will be offering to fulfil small everyday errands, such as local shopping trips and prescription deliveries for those who can not do these for themselves. Thank you to this amazing team, many of whom have been part of our Covid Response Team throughout the pandemic.

Alternatively, to request support or to find out more, call the CARESCO Community Support Co-ordinator weekdays between 9 & 11am on: 07873 187843. Please leave a message and your number if there is no answer, and they will get back to you.
