We will keep sharing information that we think will help.
We are also continuing to engage with our users to support them now that our community based services are not running, some of the services we are offering will include shopping, picking up essentials or telephone befriending for those most isolated but again, if there is a specific need -let us know!
Please make sure you link with our social media channels or have given us your most up to date contact information. For those that don’t have internet access, please provide us with either a landline or mobile number and we will be in contact so you are included in regular updates from us. Please also share our plans with your neighbors who are isolated and vulnerable too, so we can widen this support service to those who need it most!
Larkhall District Volunteer Group
The Call Line is a telephone call service where one of our volunteers makes a well-being call to people who have indicated to us that they would benefit from this contact. The calls are made each morning, Monday to Friday, and involve a chat and a check that all is well with them. Many people are alone and suffer from social isolation and it can be very cheering to have a conversation with someone first thing in the morning. This service has developed into a ‘telephone befriending’.

YouToo is a smartphone/tablet app designed to support people who care for family members in need of care support while living in their own home.
Typically these are unpaid carers providing home care support for members of the family. They are offering the app free of charge throughout the COVID19 outbreak to ensure elderly within isolation, and isolating families can keep in touch and still understand the care needs.
