Parents’ Aid is still in action supporting families despite the current pandemic, seeking creative ways to deliver services whilst home visits are not advisable and our locality surgeries at risk of closure due to restrictions on use of the venues. It may, for example, be possible for us to deliver mediation remotely using an app such as Lifesize. We still welcome referrals and would like to encourage families to ring in at any time if they think we may be able to help.
We have been asked by a partner agency to circulate the following notice:-
“CAVS is aiming to co-ordinate the support required. If you are self-isolating or have a long term health condition, are lonely and Isolated, house bound, in need of picking up shopping or in need of a friendly phone call then please contact the CAVS Ways to Wellness team who will be happy to help. Contact us on 01268 214000 or email: email@example.com
CAVS are open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm.
Out of these hours please either leave a message or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
(Castle Point, Rayleigh and Rochford)
CAVS have a spreadsheet set up for individuals who wish to volunteer their services. Initially we will use CAVS volunteers that are DBS checked however in the near future we may need to ask for others to support.”
