Included is information on free resources they can access online.
We are at present raising funds for families and children to support them at this most desperate time, Coronavirus COVID-19 is something that has no barrier at this moment to protect us. The world is suffering and people are in complete chaos and many are in desperate crisis. We already see many being made unemployed, many of which were living in poverty and had health issues or their basic wellbeing was already near to breaking point. Many families, our Elderly and our most Vulnerable are feeling the pressure of being totally isolated and alone. The NHS including the whole team from Doctors, Nurses, Catering, Domestic, ambulance drivers and many many more including Volunteers, Police, Fire and rescue, Care homes, Care staff, Food banks, Food stores, Homeless charities, Refuse collectors, Charities, Postal workers and the list goes on. Who are working tirelessly to ensure that out society is getting support and provision. We must all thank them for the part they are playing in battling against this relentless unknown disaster we know as Coronavirus- Covid-19.
