Dehenna Davison, MP for Bishop Auckland, relaunches Coronavirus support scheme to help as new restrictions come into place.
Earlier this year Dehenna Davison MP launched the Bishop Auckland Coronavirus Angels scheme, to help those affected by the Coronavirus. Since the creation of the scheme, Dehenna and her team of volunteers have helped over 650 residents with deliveries of food and or medication.
Considering the new restitutions, Davison has re-launched the Coronavirus Angels scheme and is in the process of coordinating a community response. Dehenna Davison MP said:
“As restrictions were lifted and people were no longer asked to shield, we wound down the scheme. However, with the introduction of tighter regulations, my team and I will be working throughout the month to ensure everyone who reaches out for help is heard.
“We will be trying to match up volunteers to people who need help, whether they need emergency supplies delivering or just a phone call to help with loneliness during self-isolation. We are aiming to have the scheme up and running again by Thursday.
“Back in March I had so many people volunteer to help, and I am already getting people contacting me offering to sign up again. If you are struggling to pick up medical supplies, if you need your shopping collected or any other essentials, our volunteers are here to help.”
