Gosforth Covid-19 Assistance

Gosforth Parish Council are working together to support you.

Gosforth Parish Council held an emergency meeting to discuss the impact of Covid-19 to the village of Gosforth. We have put together an action plan on how, we as a Parish Council, can support each other through this unfamiliar time.

Firstly, we are looking for volunteers to support the vulnerable and isolating residents. This support could be arranging deliveries, picking up shopping or medication, a friendly phone call, posting mail, help topping up gas or electric or collecting urgent supplies. If you feel you could offer help in any way, please contact:

Dawn Pennington (Co-ordinator) 07715182423, Rachel Rowe (Unsworth) 019467 25525/25235 or Paul Turner 07795169637

Secondly, we want to hear from those that are isolating or feel vulnerable. Tell us what you need, how we can help. Unfortunately, as the situation worsens, the list of people isolating will grow and you may need the help of a volunteer. You may be isolating and have support just now, but your support network may also need to isolate. So, if you need us now or in the future, please get in touch or one of the numbers above.

We want nobody left isolated without support!
