Coronavirus: How can you help?

Helping a neighbour

Over the coming weeks and months, many people will be self-isolating, and not everyone has a support network of family and friends to help them out. 

That's why Becky Wass from Cornwall has come up with the idea of shareable cards to allow people to offer their help to neighbours. 

The cards have already gone viral on social media, and you can download a printable page using the 'attachments' section at the bottom of this page, or click here . Just print them off, fill them in, and post them through neighbours' doors.

Thank you!

Don't stockpile! 

In recent days, none of us will have escaped the headlines describing shops with empty shelves and people stockpiling everything from toilet rolls to pasta.

There is enough for everyone, and the Government is working closely with the supermarkets to keep the nation fed. But they need everybody's help to do this. 

The letter below - signed by all the major supermarkets - asks us to stop stockpiling. This is important advice. If you stockpile, it can mean there isn't anything left for others, who can often be the most vulnerable in society. 

Don't stockpile

Ventilator Production

The Prime Minister is calling for a national effort in ventilator production to help fight coronavirus. 

The government is looking for businesses who can support in the supply of ventilators and ventilator components across the UK as part of our response to COVID-19.

As well as manufacturers, we are looking for businesses with the following skills:

  • design/specification
  • rapid prototyping
  • contract/product assembly
  • certification/regulation/testing
  • logistics
  • medical training

If you think your business can help, please email me on simon.baynes.mp@parliament.uk

 

Volunteer

Many people are keen to offer their help to vulnerable people at this difficult time. I have received countless emails and messages from people wanting to volunteer, and this shows just what an incredible community Clwyd South is.

The Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham (AVOW) have sent out a call for community volunteers. You can download their briefing sheet at the bottom of this page.
