Rudby Parish Council
About The Hutton Rudby Community Hub Isolation Support Group

The Hutton Rudby Community Hub Isolation Support Group was established to help members of our community who need help or support during the Coronavirus pandemic. The group is made up of local volunteers and its activities are co-ordinated by a Steering Group led by myself Graham Peacock (Chair) and Alice Spence (Hub Manager).

We are offering help to anyone in Hutton Rudby, Rudby, Middleton or Skutterskelfe who is self isolating because someone in their household has symptoms, and to anyone who is in one of the groups recommended not to go out because of the risk of infection.

We aim to ‘fill the gaps’ and meet any needs that are not covered by existing arrangements you may have made with family, friends, neighbours, or social services. We want to ensure that no one is left out, and that if the siuation worsens we can get through this together.

Graham Peacock, Chairman


July Update

The level of demand for our services has reduced as the country gradually emerges from lock-down and some of our volunteers are returning to work, so we are starting to scale back our operations. You may have seen a leaflet explaining these changes which we distributed recently. While things may change depending on government guidelines, from 19 July our plan is as follows:

*Helpline - Reduced Hours* Volunteers will be available to answer calls from 10-12 on Monday to Friday until 2nd August. We will then reduce to answerphone only service. Messages will be picked up each day from Monday to Friday.

*Newspapers & Shopping* We plan to phase out these services over August

*Prescription Collections* We plan to phase out this service over August

*Pastoral Support* This will be withdrawn by 31 August

We need volunteers who can help with deliveries, volunteers who can help with a telephone 'befriending service, and volunteers willing to take shifts on the helpline.
