Standish Voice and Standish's councillors are raising money for essentials that our elderly people may need during a Cornonavirus quarantine

We will be able to ensure more elderly and at-risk people in Standish are not forgotten if they are in Coronavirus quarantine


The Government has said that, in the coming weeks, people over the age of 70 will be asked to stay at home to limit their risk of contracting Coronavirus.

The length of time they may have to stay in their homes could be up to four months.

Some elderly people in Standish may not be able to rely on family, friends or neighbours to help in this situation, by doing shopping, delivering medicine or supporting them with conversations on social media, on the phone or by email. These elderly or at-risk people may feel isolated and worried. 

Other older people in quarantine may have short-term problems due to helpers being ill themselves or having to self-isolate.

We are creating a network of support for all these vulnerable elderly people and others at risk in our community.

We will also buy essential items that they may need if stocks run short in shops and they are unable to find them elsewhere. We will create packs that we can distribute.

Please give a little money to this co-ordinated initiative. It is not designed to replace help that family, friends, and neighbours can give, but to ensure isolated older people are not forgotten. We can also alert the authorities to people in need of specialised help.

We are in this together – thank you!
