HELPING LOCAL INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES DURING THE COVID-19 EPIDEMIC
Besom in Basingstoke is working with local churches to help individuals and families who need assistance due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
We have asked local agencies (eg social workers, to tell us about clients that they know who need help with day to day activities, such as:
Picking up shopping
Collecting urgent supplies
A friendly phone call every few days to check that they are okay
Technical help, eg setting up a skype account so that they can communicate with friends and family.
Besom will forward the client's details (with their permission) to their local church, so that the local church can help.
If you or someone you know needs help, please talk to your support worker and they will be able to refer you to Besom or another organisation that can help you.
If you are a support worker who would like to refer a client, please email or call 07541-123797. We will then find out how best the local church community can help.
