SLLL have closed their weekly over 60’s group at Mossley Hill Church, but are continuing to offer friendship and support to anyone over 65 who is isolated through their befriending service.
Liverpool City Council have set up two Holtlines in response to the CoronaVirus Crisis (manned 8am to 6pm)
The volunteer hotline is 0151 233 3068.
Volunteers are needed to help deliver medication to those in self-isolation, or check in with neighbours, and to help the foodbanks across the city
The support hotline is 0151 233 3066.
This has been established for anyone to call who feels they need support with a range of basic tasks because they don’t have a support network – friends and family – in place.
People can also sign up online via Liverpool City Council’s website: www.liverpool.gov.uk/coronavirus
