Darlington Community Care: We want to make contact with folks who may not be using social media or internet.
The group was created on 15th March and 263 people have joined. The aim is:
” to support us all during this time of crisis – to create a space where people in the Darlington community can explicitly ask for help, either for themselves or others, and where people can intentionally offer help to others. I think the Coronavirus virus not only creates enormous stress and anxiety for people, but also creates opportunities for us to grow and strengthen our community connections, making sure we all take care of ourselves and each other. Please invite others in the community to this group and let’s leave no-one behind! “
Are you able to help?
If you are on Facebook, please search for Darlington Community Care and join the page.
NOT ON FACEBOOK?
Not everyone is on social media so there is a flyer below that you can download use to reach out to folks around you. You can print this and distribute to letterboxes in your neighborhood.
If you have distributed these or other offers of help in your street, please let Stacey August know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can create a map of the streets which have been covered and direct any extra offers of support.
We will shortly be posting a map of the streets that have been covered.
Are you Self isolated and needing some assistance?
If you are someone who needs support, there are folks in our village who are willing to help you out. Please attach a coloured cloth to your letterbox to indicate that you would appreciate some support. Someone might then, drop a flyer into your letter box with their details so that you know who to contact. You might end up with a dozen flyers being dropped in your letterbox, but that’s not such a bad thing. There are already lots of people in Darlington offering to do shopping or pick up medications or just have plain old chats over the fence.
If you don’t get a flyer then call Sonja Parker on 0439985406 or Stacey August on 0400 247 526
