• Handpicked Harrogate

Resources for our Community

With the CoronaVirus precautions requiring those over the age of 70 to stay indoors, we will have a number of people who are feeling isolated and who will have issues getting to the shops, necessary medical, dental and other appointments, collecting prescriptions, and many other things.

We also have a business community that is suffering from reduced footfall.

There has been panic buying which has led to temporary shortages of some goods. We also have vulnerable people in our community such as those in food poverty. These people will not be able to afford to stock up on food and will have to shop more frequently or rely on food banks and the generosity of others. We also have those who are homeless, who will also struggle.

Let’s see what we can do about helping our wider community and our business community.

This blog and the article that will also appear in the Handpicked Magazine, lists the initiatives that are available to people in the local area. Some are provided by our local independent businesses for example, delivering food to those who are in isolation. Others are provided by our lovely local community who are providing their assistance for free. Finally, we have the initiatives that are larger and more organised; food banks and charities that are working to help our most vulnerable people in a more formally organised way.

If you have an initiative, and it does not appear on this list, please email jenni@handpickedharrogate.co.uk with the details of what you are doing, and, if appropriate, who people should contact if they feel they want to help you with your initiative. In this way we can let our community know where to go if they are struggling, who to contact if they want to help, and ensure that no one feels they are abandoned or forgotten.

I will be updating the list on a daily basis so keep checking back to keep up to date with what’s available to you and how you can help support your community. (As people send in more information the resources listed will increase).
