Rotherham Heroes and Community Hub – here for you

11th January 2021

As Rotherham locks down, it is important that everyone who needs support during this difficult period gets the help they need.

If you or someone you know needs help with accessing food parcels, getting their medication from the pharmacy, or is struggling with loneliness, contact the Rotherham Community Hub by calling 01709 807319 or completing our online form.

The Community Hub is also there to help the clinically extremely vulnerable. who have no other means of support. If you have received a letter from the Government or your local GP advising you to begin shielding, you should try to limit the number of times you leave your home so that you can limit your risk of catching COVID-19. There are many things clinically extremely vulnerable can do to help keep them safe including: 

  • Working from home 
  • Having their weekly shop delivered to them 
  • Exercising outdoors when they are able to 
  • Not mixing with people from outside their household or support bubble 

You can still receive informal care at home from those in your support bubble and continue to receive care at home from social care and medical professionals. If you get help from friends or family and they become unwell or start having symptoms of coronavirus, contact the Community Hub for any extra support you need until they’re feeling better again.

If you live with a clinically extremely vulnerable person who receives visits from care professionals, please take care and keep two metres distance from the care workers and wear a face covering if you can.
