Easy Access

Virus Response Neston - Assistance Registration

Published: 24th March 2020 10:19

Neston Community Youth Centre staff have been working really hard with lots of  organisations to co-ordinate help locally for those that need it.

Neston CYC

What does that mean?

It means that from today if you visit www.nestoncyc.org.uk you will be able to offer or ask for help in dealing with self isolation. We've tried to keep it as simple as possible.

What help?

To begin with, our first priority is to ensure that anyone who is self isolating is able to access their normal medication. We have a lot of older and vulnerable people in the area, many of whom rely on medicine for other conditions.

Next week we will start to organise getting essential groceries, toiletries and cleaning products on behalf of those that can't and we will tell you more when this is available.

What can you do?

First, if you're fit and well, look after and help your own family, friends and neighbours without telling us. Pick up some 'bits' for your next door neighbour but maintain their isolation by leaving items on their doorstep before knocking, stepping away from the door and waiting to make sure they're collected.

Second, if you've done that and you can help others, click the link above and let us know.

Third, if you know somebody who needs to self isolate, but isn't getting support, let us know that too using the same link or by calling 0151 336 7805

Finally, follow our website or Facebook page and download the Neston Life app to your phone where the incredible About My Area are working really hard to get important information out.

As time goes on, we will let you know what else we need to deal with problems as they arise.

Is the Centre Open?

Updated 24.3.20 - the Centre itself is now closed, but staff are working remotely.

The Job Centre can be contacted on 0151 255 4804. This is not a regional or national call centre, this number is for Neston Job Centre and you will be able to speak to our amazing local staff.

More information, including Cheshire West's response to the current situation, help in Willaston and Burton, and lots more, can be found in this article.

Thank goodness for Aboutmyarea and NCYC!

Some of us elderly and vulnerable people who are normally in the community doing things are feeling discombobulated. We are really fortunate and grateful to have young friends doing our food shopping, but it feels odd.

What can we do? We can chat to people on the phone.
We oldies are getting our pensions, and not spending on cafes or meals out, so we can donate money. West Cheshire Food Bank helps those in need in Neston - go to https://westcheshire.foodbank.org.uk/ and click on the red Donate button top right. Just a thought!

You need to log in before you can do that! It's only a quick registration process to join the AMA network and completely free.
