About The Hutton Rudby Community Hub Isolation Support Group

The Hutton Rudby Community Hub Isolation Support Group has been 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.

*Prescriptions Delivery Update*

Hutton Rudby Surgery have asked for our help with a prescription delivery service for patients who are isolating or in ‘at risk’ groups. This arrangement will help reduce the footfall in the surgery, reducing risk for prescription collectors, patients and staff. It is provided on an ‘opt-in’ basis and anyone who is happy making their own arrangements are free to do so. There are a few teething issues to sort out, but we are getting a lot of interest, and our phone lines are busy with calls for prescription collections.

Please bear with us if you can’t get through the first time, and leave a clear message with your details (your name, a call back number, and reason for your call) so we can get back to you.

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.

Getting your newspapers deliveredGetting help with your shopping

If you are in isolation, and would like to get your daily newspaper we can help.

To reduce the risk of infection transmission for everyone involved we are organising this service as delivery rounds. This means fewer visits to the Spar which reduces risk for both Spar staff and the volunteer. We are also aiming to minimise the frequency of contacts you have with volunteers to make payments.

Please contact the helpline if you would like to use this service.

Diana Coatsworth, Newspaper Delivery Co-ordinator

If you are in isolation and need help with shopping, we can help.

We can help you make arrangements for deliveries by local suppliers, or we can arrange for a volunteer to do a weekly shop on your behalf and deliver it to you. To reduce the risk of infection transmission for everyone involved, the service aims to keep the number of visits to shops, and contacts between volunteer and client for payments as low as possible.

Please contact the helpline if you would like to use this service.
