‘Staying Together While Apart’ project has been developed to assist people during the COVID-19 pandemic and its immediate aftermath.

The project will mobilise volunteers to help older and vulnerable adults, and those with underlying health conditions, which put them at risk of serious illness as a result of COVID-19. The project aims to benefit individuals in two key areas:

1. Making Contact – The project will improve the mental health and wellbeing of older and vulnerable adults by reducing feelings of isolation and loneliness.  Zoom, Skype, live streaming, and YouTube podcasts along with more traditional phone calls will be used to communicate messages of support in our communities.

2. Reaching out – Alongside signposting to other charities and organisations, the scheme will also expand, ‘shop and drop’ home deliveries of food, care packages, and prescriptions organised for the most vulnerable who are self-isolating.

We have created a short questionnaire to find out what you are already doing and how we can assist you. Could you please take a few moments to complete it or forward it to those in your parish/church who are working with the volunteers and organising the support work for those most affected by COVID-19?

This project is responding to an emergency situation and we wish to get it off the ground as soon as possible. I would be immensely grateful if you could complete the questionnaire by Monday, the 17th of August. 

Should you have any questions, please do get in touch: klavdija.erzen@rcadc.org.
