We also encourage you to keep supporting the causes you care about. All charities are going to be stretched at this time, with lots of fundraising events cancelled 和 many volunteers forced to stay at home. Now more than ever your donations will help.

当心你的邻居

One of the simplest things you can do right now is look out for your neighbours 和 offer help with shopping 和 other err和s. It's not just about neighbours who are self-isolating or vulnerable. Other people in the community who might also appreciate help are:

  • stretched medical staff 和 volunteers
  • staff 和 volunteers in key worker roles
  • 超市工作人员
  • 送货司机.

Keep yourself safe when helping

  1. Let family 和 friends know what you’re doing.
  2. Support family, friends 和 neighbours by phone or video call.
  3. Stay at least two metres - about three steps - away from people you’re helping.
  4. Offer to run err和s for people but stay outside of people’s homes.
  5. Keep washing your h和s often for 20 seconds.
  6. Don’t take on too much - it's often better not to offer at all than to let someone down.
  7. If you’re trying to help someone with very serious issues – don’t be afraid to flag with appropriate statutory services.
