A MESSAGE FROM HEALTHWATCH - 4 APRIL 2020

CORONAVIRUS: COVID 19

I hope all our Friends are keeping safe during this difficult time.

I have been asked if I would circulate the following information regarding Helplines which can be accessed within the Doncaster area.  

Please feel free to use them or keep a regular check on the Healthwatch website or Facebook site to keep your eye on any changes which might come into force over the coming weeks, as they are updating both on a regular basis with  key information and links:

www.healthwatchdoncaster.org.uk/coronavirus    and our social media channels are sharing regular updates:


There is also regular information and updates shared through Doncaster Council’s website:

and through a Doncaster official Coronavirus Facebook page:


To access help and support from Doncaster Community Hub call 01302 430300, email  enquiries@dncommunityhub.org.uk   online chat  www.dncommunityhub.org.uk   

The Local Hub based at the Dome is providing:

A Helpline  7 days a week from 8.00am to 8.00pm – anyone can ring this if they are vulnerable and have no other support or if they know of someone who needs help

An email service to access and request support

An online chat service daily from 8.00am to 8.00pm

Practical support such as urgent food supplies, shopping, collection of medication and checking up on vulnerable people

Signposting and connecting people to others in the local community and ideas for ways to keep well during this difficult time such as exercising at home, keeping connected; to friends and family or just finding someone to talk to  

A place for those who want to volunteer and help to co-ordinate this with existing voluntary and community organisations
