Royal Greenwich Council has launched a major new initiative to support residents through the new Community Hub that will link thousands of volunteers with opportunities to help people who are most in need of support.
If you need help because you are vulnerable and self-isolating, and have not got a family member, friend or neighbour who can help, our volunteers could provide support to:
- collect and deliver prescriptions
- deliver essential food packages
- connect you to local community services
To request this support online CLICK HERE.
You can also request support by:
- calling 0800 470 4831 (seven days a week, 8.30am to 6pm)
You can also call the school number and leave a message; 020 8856 6525, but please bear in mind that the office staff are working from home and messages are not always able to be checked every day.
For your Information, I have arranged for a professional counselling service to work with the school. My aim is to ensure we have this support available to anyone who needs it once we return. The school will be able to refer pupils, parents and staff members if it’s felt that they might benefit from counselling support after what has been a difficult and worrying time for so many.
In the meantime, here are some contact details for support services that may benefit you or your children:
