Erewash Voluntary Action has set up a new service in response to the COVID-19 Virus and people who are in self-isolation. This will be a time limited service to provide a one-off shop or prescription collection service in response to those most in need; to people who have no other support network at this difficult time to provide them with some much-needed shopping essentials.
Self-referrals for this service can now be made by either calling Erewash Voluntary Action on 0115 9466740 (9.00 – 3.30pm) or complete the attached CV-19 Referral Form with as much information as possible and return to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once the referrals have been received, they will allocate a DBS checked and trained member of staff or volunteer. Please call to limit exposure, they will not be conducting a face to face meeting prior to allocation, so it is imperative that a CV-19 Referral Form is completed in full.
Also if you require further support please contact email@example.com
