Share your details and stay connected
When communities stay connected, they are safer, stronger and more resilient. At times like these, staying connected might take a bit more effort, but there are still some simple things you can do.
If you already have a neighbour’s phone number, you could give them a call to make sure they are okay. If it’s a mobile phone number, you could also send a text message to check up on them if you don’t feel comfortable calling.
Pop a note into the mailboxes of homes in your street. Give your name, phone number, email address and house number and offer to help if they need it. It could be picking up essential groceries and medication or simply having a chat.
Small gestures such as these can make a world of difference to those who may be feeling isolated and you’ll be making new friends along the way.
