Assistance during Covid19

An important new grant has been set up to help Shropshire residents affected by COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Shropshire Council has been allocated a ‘Local Authority Emergency Assistance Grant for Food and Essential Supplies’ to support people who are struggling to afford food and other essentials due to COVID-19. It is really important that we get this money to those residents who have been financially impacted by Covid-19, especially if affected by job losses or financial insecurity.

If you know of someone who is finding it difficult to pay for some of their essential costs due to COVID-19, or if they have become homeless or are concerned about losing their home, please guide them to call 0345 678 9078. We’ll help with an application and put people in touch with a specialist adviser.

Please encourage people affected to apply now as the funding is limited and once spent assistance will no-longer be available from this particular grant. If you have any queries at all, please call 0345 678 9078. Further information is available on Gov.UK”

And finally, a quick reminder about the Healthwatch survey that we mentioned in our last update. ‘Help improve the experience of anyone leaving hospital’ – this is the aim of a new survey launched by Shropshire Healthwatch. Running from 1st September to 31st October 2020, the survey aims to gather the views and experiences of anyone who has been in hospital and then left in the last 6 months, so that services can be improved during what could be difficult winter months ahead. Your feedback and comments are invaluable, so help us to learn the important lessons from the pandemic and so improve services to people throughout Shropshire.

You can find the survey here ….

Stay safe and well.
