Slide Covid-19 5 ways you can help to support yourself, your loved ones and your community At a time like this we encourage you to consider ways to keep yourself, your loved ones and those in your
community safe, particularly the isolated and vulnerable. We are following the advice from the government and NHS and encourage you to do the same:
https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
1. Talk Start a group conversation with household members, other relatives, friends and neighbours to discuss what to do if a COVID-19 outbreak occurs in your community, what the needs of each person will be and how you can support people who are self-isolating at home.
Consider using technology to communicate such as WhatsApp, Facetime or Skype. If your neighbourhood has a website or social media page, consider joining it to maintain access to neighbours, information, and resources. Alternatively, share phone numbers and/or email addresses particularly with those who are isolated or vulnerable but be aware that some people will not want to share contact details. Set up a phone tree/call/message system but stay safe – leave deliveries at the door/don’t let anyone, especially strangers, into your home.

Consider establishing a ‘buddy’ system within your community to ensure everyone stays connected to COVID-19 related news, services and can receive support safely, such as essentials deliveries.

Slide 2.Plan Plan ways to provide practical care for those who might be at greater risk. Think about what medication they may need and update prescription requests. Choose a room in your home that can be used to separate sick household members from those who are healthy. Provide a trusted person with your spare key in case someone needs to get into your home. Think about who could look after your children or pets if you become unwell. For the most up to date guidance on who should self isolate following the link to the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-advice/

Slide 3. Identify Identify and set up an emergency contact list of family, friends, neighbours, healthcare providers, teachers, employers, the local public health department, and other community resources. Create a list of local organisations that you and your neighbours can contact in the event that one of you needs access to information, healthcare services, support, or resources. Consider including organisations that provide mental health or counselling services, food, and other supplies. 4. Create If you are self-isolating create a daily routine that prioritises looking after yourself. Make sure you exercise and eat well – there are lots of free exercise classes on TV and YouTube. You could try reading more or watching movies, trying new relaxation techniques, or finding new knowledge on the internet.
