Help your community – become a volunteer
Foodbanks across Warwickshire provide a lifeline for anyone in need of food and provisions to look after their families, but they need extra volunteers to keep them running. Think you can help? Visit the WCAVA website: https://www.wcava.org.uk/

Request for PPE
To limit the spread of Coronavirus, we need to ensure supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). If you have FFP2 face masks or other PPE, please contact CV19PPE@warwickshire.gov.uk. We will distribute to health & care staff to support the vulnerable in Warwickshire.

Social Distancing
The advice is very simple: to stop the spread of #covid19 people need to stay at home and reduce the risk of spreading the virus. This is not just to reduce pressure on our hospitals & #NHS colleagues, but also to save the lives of the ones we love. Who wouldn’t want to do that!

Social Distancing Alternative 2
