UPDATE ON SOCIAL PRESCRIBING ACTIVITIES
of you who asked for help via our survey in Aug/Sept will be contacted by a volunteer working on behalf of Ash Valley Village Connections project to plan how you would like to start your support when lockdown eases. 

Whilst meeting with you face to face isn't possible during lockdown, we are taking this opportunity to start connections via phone until we can meet with you safely to  assist you using your preferred digital device.

We can loan residents without devices a tablet to practice with. Our mission is to help you create the online connections you need for video calls, shopping, banking, entertainment and anything else you have asked about, including  accessing vital services or the latest scams info. 

Please remember that a conversation with one of our volunteers does not commit you to anything, it is just to allow us to discuss which device you would like to use and what services you may wish to access with it.

Please don't hesitate to contact Claire on 07595 674241 if you would like to be added to the support list or have any questions. 

RECOVERY ACTIONS DURING LOCKDOWN
Our Hadhams Yoga, Pilates & Adult Ballet instructors will stream via a new digital portal so you can attend over 150 classes from home.

A Freephone & online Frontline service will pilot for joined up access to services; Citizens Advice, Community Transport, Carers in Herts, Adult social care, bereavement, domestic abuse & Fraud helplines.

We are linking up with other villages and organisations to ensure that as many dots as possible are joined for you for after lockdown.
