NEW INITIATIVE: Facebook group set up to help Berkhamsted residents during pandemic

 Published on: 22nd April 2020   |   By: Amneet Kaur   |   Category: Uncategorized

Mutual Aid Group has been set up on Facebook with the intent of helping people in need during pandemic.

The Facebook group aims to provide a forum for people in Berkhamsted and Northchurch to support each other during the crisis. 

In less than four weeks the group has set up a network of volunteers in most streets.

They provide valuable services such as social contact, collection of prescriptions and shopping, provision of hot meals in addition to bringing some fun and entertainment to people.

The group can provide help in many ways, one example is when an appeal was made by Age UK Dacorum on the group for befriending phone volunteers.

The response was immediate and a number of community minded people stepped forward, they helped with some urgent issues too.

The group has also forged links with other agencies that people may need help from such as DENS and Mind.
