Who are we? BARTON VOLUNTEER NETWORK BVN
Barton Volunteer Network is a group (supported by the Parish Council, ESBC and Staffordshire County Council) to help our vulnerable ‘At Risk’ neighbours and friends in Barton under Needwood during the current Covid-19 pandemic.
The aim is to help you maintain your social distance in the crisis and not to leave you on your own. The volunteers will be your neighbours and friends or will be known to your neighbours or friends. We also have the support of some key resources in the village such as Barton Family Practice, Mercer Farming, Well Pharmacy and the Co-op.
What are we here to do?
The BVN is here to support you with several things:
• Arranging for somebody to get some shopping for you
- Arranging for somebody to collect your prescription.
• Arranging for somebody to call you for a friendly chat, linking you with other people in the same situation.
• Making sure anybody who offers you help has identification from us.
• Seeking general advice – but note this is not a coronavirus helpline. For such contact the NHS 111 service https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19.
How do you contact us?
• phone on our dedicated number 07931 526723 which will be manned 24 hours a day – you will reach a parish councillor or borough councillor.
• e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
