WINTER GRANT SCHEME
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has launched a Winter Grant Scheme to help households struggling in the run up to Christmas. For further details go to https://covid19.eastriding.gov.uk/support/
This page will be updated with further information as and when it becomes available, as will the Government and NHS websites, so please check regularly. Links to their sites can be found further down this page.
Below are some key points to consider during this difficult time, and also contact numbers for some local shops.
MINIMISING THE SPREAD
- Follow the guidance given by the Government, and check regularly for new information to ensure you are following current advice to keep yourself and others safe.
- Keep a watch out for family, friends and neighbours, especially those who may be classed as vulnerable (over 70 and those with underlying health conditions), as well as the community as a whole.
- If you’re able to offer any help, please do so safely, observing the social-distancing advice.
- There are many residents in isolation who are not online, please support them if you’re able. A telephone call or text message to check in on them, or a note through their door with your own contact details could help them feel less isolated.
- Stay at home if possible, this will minimise the spread and allow key workers and essential services to continue to operate.
- As schools have now closed, some parents may be struggling to find child care if they are still having to work away from home. Please do not consider the older groups and vulnerable that should be isolating as child care options.
PLEASE REMEMBER, YOUR DECISIONS AND ACTIONS RIGHT NOW, MAY HAVE IMPACTS ON OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES, AND MAY HAVE CONSEQUENCES FOR YOURSELF AND OTHERS IN THE FUTURE.
There are some people who may be taking this situation as an opportunity to take advantage of us. Be on your guard and aware. Do not give any personal details to anyone if you are not happy to do so – it could be a scam.
