Portishead Community Covid-19 Response Update
News - 31 July 2020
The PTC team have been working in partnership with Portishead Coronavirus Support Network, other community groups and individuals since the end of March to deal with the impact of Covid-19 locally.
Up until the end of July, we have been supporting 798 people in various ways including shopping, prescriptions and helping to resolve many different issues. 716 shopping trips have been completed by volunteers. 173 registered volunteers have helped out over the last few months.
The Covid-19 response is ongoing – only last week, 4 new residents were added to our list of people needing support.
None of this would have been possible without the help of our many fantastic community groups and the time and commitment given by individual volunteers.
We are working with North Somerset to develop a community history project, which will record the community responses as well as evaluating processes for the future.
Thank you everyone!
