Coronavirus Kindness

Coronavirus Kindness

Many people are pulling together to help others as more and more people need to stay at home and avoid contact with people because of coronavirus (Covid-19).

Together we can help those who need it the most.

How to help others safely

  1. Start with family and friends, then look to people in your street
  2. Deliver some food supplies
  3. Collect and drop off medicines
  4. Tackle loneliness by staying connected
  5. Use trusted sources and online help
  6. Join experienced volunteer groups

How are you being Coronavirus Kind?

Tell us about the small things you're doing to help people in need by emailing communications@staffordshire.gov.uk or posting on social media using the hashtags #CoronavirusKindness and #DoingOurBit, so that we can inspire others to do the same.

Start with family and friends, then look to your street

Do

  • Always follow the advice about keeping your distance and washing your hands
  • Keep it small, if you just look after the people in your street you will be staying safe and making a huge difference
  • Stick to a patch you know well
  • Keep to where people will recognise you and trust your offer is genuine
  • Contact people by phone or through their letter box to offer support.
    • Put postcard type notes through the letterboxes of the people you can support. Use the Support Staffordshire template if you can
    • Ask people to send you a text or give you a call so that you have their phone number and know what support they need
    • Keep an eye out for fraudsters, and if confident to do so, politely (and safely) challenge any cold callers in your area

Don't

  • Put your home address on a public forum
  • Put details about people on the internet or give them out to anyone you don't know
  • Share neighbour's phone numbers or personal information with other neighbours without their permission
  • Go into people's homes
  • Get into personal care or going into people's houses - be assured that other agencies are looking at this

Do some food shopping

Do

  • Always wash your hands before handling anything you will be delivering to others
  • Shop regularly for small amounts, so that you are having regular contact and can check on anyone who is vulnerable
  • Put shopping on doorsteps or in other arranged safe places
  • Ring the doorbell and then step back - keep two metres (3 steps away) from the front door or chat through open windows
  • Ask if your neighbour is well, check regularly on anyone who is vulnerable

Don't

  • Go into people's houses
  • Help if you or anyone in your household shows any symptoms of coronavirus - a cough or a high temperature
  • Accept any payment for your support

Collect and drop off medicines

Do

  • Always wash your hands before handling anything you will be delivering to others
  • Put medication on doorsteps or in other arranged safe places
  • Ring the doorbell and then step back - keep two metres (3 steps away) from the front door or chat through open windows
  • Ask if your neighbour is well, check regularly on anyone who is vulnerable

Don't

  • Go into people's houses
  • Help if you or anyone in your household shows any symptoms of coronavirus - a cough or fever
  • Accept any payment for your support

Tackle loneliness by staying connected

Do

  • Make regular contact with friends, family and neighbours to make sure they are ok and are up-to-date with what they need to be doing
  • Help a person staying at home create an easy to read list of phone numbers of friends and family, which they can keep by the phone
  • Start a FaceBook or WhatsApp group
  • Tell people about the free online resources from Staffordshire Libraries and Information Service

Don't

  • Post details of vulnerable people on the internet or to anyone you don't know
  • Assume everyone has heard the latest about what they need to do
  • Share content which could cause unecessary anxiety
  • Go into people's houses

Use trusted sources and online help

  • Visit the government's website for the latest information
  • Use the NHS 111 Symptom Checker if you or anyone you're helpling has symptoms of coronavirus.
  • Visit our Staffordshire County Council pages where you'll find information about advice, support and care for adults, as well as changes to council services.
  • Use Staffordshire Connects - a directory of help and social groups, many of which meet virtually, at a local level

Join experienced volunteer groups

If you can offer your support, please do this through Support Staffordshire. This is the most effective way of supporting your local community.

Many of Staffordshire's voluntary groups already provide everyday support for vulnerable people. But these groups are often staffed by people who are in the vulnerable groups now being asked to stay at home.

Support Staffordshire are co-ordinating people who can volunteer to fill the gaps and support the vital work going on in their neighbourhood.

Visit (click on to link)  Support Staffordshire for details of how you can get involved.

However Ranton Parish has positions for five councillors and therefore we would like to invite any Parishioner who would wish to serve on the Parish council to contact any of the above or the Parish Clerk - Gayle Whelan. The contact numbers are below.

It is important for the village to maintain an active and vibrant council to ensure that we address and support all village needs and maintain an independent voice for Ranton

All relevant training will be given to appointed Councillors
