Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Braintree isolation support

This group is to offer support to people within Braintree and surrounding areas.

If you need help getting shopping during isolation then please don’t hesitate to ask and I hope other members will be able to help, this also extends to any ask people have during quarantine.

Let’s act like a community and stand together, no one needs to feel alone during isolation

Colne Engaine community response

Cherry McKean, who set up the Earls Colne community action response and Spike Townsend

who set up the Colne Engaine Community Response back in March, have a message for you.

‘’We know these restrictions are difficult, and the vast majority of our residents have done an excellent

Job in doing their bit to slow the spread, but we cannot get complacent as cases are rising,

more hospital admissions, more deaths and more suffering.

We owe it to ourselves, our loved ones, and our community to not let that happen.

Let's work together to stick to the rules & do it for our community.

Earls Colne community action response

This group was set up back in March to help the community in lock down, the parish council phone number was used as a hotline for helping people out with shopping requests and prescription etc

this is still active if needed. From time to time posts relevant to covid-19 guidances from council

and government sources will be included on the facebook page.

Stisted covid19 community group

Gosfield Grapevine Community Group

We can only support people living in Gosfield who have no other way of getting their prescriptions and/or shopping.

We also want to ensure that no one slips through the net so are encouraging people to let us know if they are worried about someone who may be isolated or struggling or who doesn't have

friends/relatives nearby.

Contact details: Sara Moutard - 01787 479 655 or  07837 699 014

Joanne Colyer - 01787 477 808  or  07894 577 629

Please leave a message with just your name and number if the phone is not answered straight away and we will return your call as quickly as we can.

We are here to assist anyone in Stisted however we can during the virus crisis.

If you are in isolation we can arrange someone to collect your shopping, go and get your

prescriptions, be a point of contact or just give you a buzz. We care!

Only members can see who's in the group and what they post on facebook.

Unite in Kind

White Colne community response

We’re people around Essex who are committed to tackling loneliness and isolation through

acts of kindness.

Now, more than ever, isolation is affecting the people of Essex. The outbreak of coronavirus is forging physical barriers, but this doesn’t have to mean loneliness.

Together with hundreds of community, charity and voluntary groups around Essex, we’re building an online community of kindness. We’re helping people connect with friends, neighbours and strangers. We’re working together to help everyone overcome feelings of isolation.

Our social movement is inspiring people to be kind and support each other, even when we can’t be together in the same physical space. Together, we can combat the effects of coronavirus. Together,

we can connect our community with kindness.
