Coronavirus Notice (Covid-19) - Update
After every storm comes a Rainbow
At Community Together CIC our hearts go out to all those effected by Coronavirus and thoughts and prayers to those families and friends that became ill or even lost their lives.
We have worked hard to be the rainbow in people’s clouds during the pandemic supporting you as you played your part in helping control the virus spread, protecting the NHS and saving lives.
As an organisation that provided 13 different weekly health and wellbeing activities across Tamworth each week as well as our Community Café in Tamworth Castle Grounds which closed overnight due to the virus we like so many other organisations have lost income and impacted on our volunteers many of whom had to shield at the start of the pandemic. But that didn’t stop us putting all our energies and resources into coordinating Tamworth’s local response supporting a Tamworth partnership called the Tamworth Self Isolation Support Group.
Friday 26th June 2020 marks our 100th Day of delivery in supporting Tamworth through this pandemic.
Following the government announcement with further easing of the lockdown measures we are pleased to announce that whilst this is a dark moment in our history we are adapting to the new normal and can start to recover and reopen more support to the community as well as creating some new elements to our local offer.
From 1st July 2020 –
‘The Tamworth Telephone Support Line’
We are pleased to announce that as a positive outcome from the pandemic our Covid-19 Telephone Support Line will continue and be relaunched as ‘The Tamworth Telephone Support Line’
. The current Telephone Line will move from an emergency response line for Covid-19 to a new Tamworth Telephone Support Line service, still offering information regarding access to food, signposting, befriending, unemployment support, meal delivery service, access to virtual online sessions and social activities as they re open.
The telephone support line new hours from 1st July
will be Tuesday 10am to 5pm Wednesday 10am to 3pm, Thursday 10am-5pm, Friday 10am to 5pm and Saturday Mornings 10am to 1pm.
