One such group being impacted are those in our student community; living away from their normal family support. It is therefore no surprise that we have been made aware of an urgent request for help to deliver food parcels to students who are currently self-isolating.
300 students living in private accommodation across the city are self-isolating. Our two Universities have food parcels to give to them but have no way to deliver.
Volunteers with vehicles are needed to support the deliveries of food parcels on Saturday 3rd October Full expenses and fuel costs will be paid and the food parcels will be able to fit into a normal car. Guidance on how to conduct the deliveries in a safe and Covid secure manner will be given.
If you can give up some time to help then please contact Joe Kirwin; Community Wellbeing Officer, Adult Social Care & Integrated Services Newcastle Civic centre on 07812 517266
