Coronavirus Emergency – Bagshot Care

During the period of lockdown, as the UK and wider world struggled to control the spread of the highly infectious Coronavirus, voluntary community agencies and local churches, with the support of Surrey Heath Borough Council, set up Surrey Heath Prepared (SHP), to offer assistance and support to residents who were self-isolating.  Many local residents stepped forward to volunteer in this endeavour.

Now that the infection rate has fallen and the period of enforced lockdown is coming to an end, support to residents within Surrey Heath is changing. The borough wide effort managed by SHP finished on 30th June 2020.  In Bagshot, we want to continue to support our community while the need still exists.  From 1st July, Bagshot Care working in partnership with local churches and a team of community volunteers, will manage any new or on-going requests for help by residents shielding or in quarantine who do not have neighbours, friends or family who can provide them with support and assistance.

If you live in Bagshot and need help because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, please call Bagshot Care any weekday between 10 am and noon on 07973 560216.   You may leave a voicemail message if you call at any other time, and it will be picked up at 10 am on the next weekday.
