Community action poster
This is intended as a guide to help residents get the right information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and to support communities to help each other.
Trusted Sources of Information
This is a very fast-moving situation and our focus right now is on delaying the spread of coronavirus and ensuring our services are responding well. This is clearly hugely important and requires all our attention.
Everyone has a key role in promoting www.nhs.uk/coronavirus and www.gov.uk/coronavirus as trusted sources of information. It is really important to ensure people go to the right sources of information and keep up to date with how to look after themselves.
Keep yourself safe:
Advice to residents:

Supporting your community
Six Ways to Help:
The most immediate form of help that residents can provide to their community during this time is to look out for vulnerable neighbours. Join our ‘Here to Help’ campaign by supporting a neighbour who is self-isolating. Residents can download our two-sided or one-sided postcard to tell them that they are available. They can also Download ourcommunity action poster to display. It lists six steps that can make a positive difference in your community.
Anyone looking to donate money can be advised of the following routes:
Voluntary Norfolk will be using their volunteering portal to gather the various roles that are needed in the sector. This can be found here: https://www.voluntarynorfolk.org.uk/volunteering/. More options will be added as more gaps arise. This is a great option for those wanting a more structured way to help or to do roles which require safeguarding and training.
If you speak to people running an existing community group who are looking for guidance and advice, Community Action Norfolk are supporting in this way. Their website has several resources for the VCSE sector: www.communityactionnorfolk.org.uk.

If residents feel a member of their family is at risk due to their age or an underlying health condition, the advice is to practice social distancing and consider isolating themselves before any symptoms occur. The government has issued advice on how to self-isolate and reduce the possibility of transmission.
