'No Concern Is Too Big Or Small' For Scarborough Hub

'No Concern Is Too Big Or Small' For Scarborough Hub

Published by Karen Liu at 6:18am 16th April 2020.

Scarborough Borough residents who are feeling lonely are being reminded of the community hub.

The Council says its volunteers can help people who are in need during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Deputy Leader, Liz Colling, said:

"All the authorities, North Yorkshire and Scarborough, and all the charities etc, there's just one phone number to ring, it's 01609 780780.

Council staff are working in those hubs. They were the ones who were volunteering over the weekend.

We can help you with delivering food, doing some shopping, collecting your prescriptions and taking the dog for a walk.

Quite a lot of people have asked us just to ring them for a natter.

So if you're alone and self-isolating and missing that contact, they will get some volunteers to ring you every now and again just for a chat and a catch-up.

No concern is too small, equally no concern is too big.

Please do not be at home thinking 'how am I going to this? How can I afford this?' speak to somebody and we will do our very, very best to help."

Anyone who needs assistance in Scarborough and Filey is asked to call the community hub, which is led by Age UK, on 01609 780780.

For those in Whitby, which is led by Coast and Vale Community Action (CaVCA), is asked to call 01723 362205 or email ccr@cavca.org.uk.
