AGE UK - Scarborough and Filey Covid-19 Response
Age Uk have set up a community help project for people who may be struggling with shopping or collecting their prescriptions. If you or you know anyone who needs help please contact the community team on the link below or give them a call.
VOLUNTEERS! We would welcome your help. We are building a database of volunteers who are willing to help in their communities, this can include, telephone conversations with those who are isolated, shopping, co-ordinating volunteers and those in need, and just building a stronger community moving forward. We are also wanting anyone who is struggling with Covid-19 across Scarborough and Filey to get in touch, and we will help in any way that we can.
We are able to help in a number of ways, so for anyone who has any queries in the Scarborough and Filey area please get in touch primarily with ourselves on 01723 379058 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or otherwise our colleagues at YMCA Scarborough are contactable on 01723 374227 or Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale Mind on 01723 356562.
Coronavirus - Guidance for Volunteers
We have been asked by some of our volunteers for guidance on visiting while there is a risk of coronavirus. Please find below a link to our guidance as at 9th March 2020. We will keep this updated.
Helping us to care for carers
Without a dedicated team of volunteers Support For Carers would be unable to provide a much needed break to those who are supporting someone within their own home. Volunteers freely give their time, skills and experience to help support the many carers within the Scarborough district.
As the number of carers continues to grow we need the help of volunteers more now than ever, particularly in the areas of our work shown below.
• Volunteer visitors
• Coffee Clubs - helpers
• Wednesday Friendship Club - helpers
• Songs and Scones - helpers and drivers - (the last Thursday of each month)
Without volunteers we would struggle to provide the level of support that all carers increasingly need. Being a carer can be a lonely place to be, and talking to others who understand how that feels is immensely helpful and reassuring. Just a couple of hours a week or fortnight on a day and time to suit YOU can make all the difference.
Here at Support For Carers we realise not everyone wants to volunteer on their own, we welcome couples or those in pairs to come forward.
All our volunteers go through a recruitment process which includes references and police checks followed by induction training.
