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.

This service is run by Tamworth Resident Volunteers for Tamworth Residents. If you would like to volunteer and support this service then please contact Lee either via email communitytogethercic@gmail.com or call 07496 355 946

    Testimonials

    Sapheen – supported by her P.A Sharon – Service User

    "Sapheen first attended a Community Together CIC Café almost 3 years ago. She was made really welcome and is now a regular and has gone on to attend other Community Together CIC initiatives including Befriending Group, Arts and Craft Club, and the Singing Group as well as going on the annual seaside trip. Attending these services has given Sapheen the opportunity and confidence to interact with others, making many new friends along the way. When asked why she liked to go to the Community Café or Hub, Sapheen said “They are nice and I have fun”. Asked how she would feel if they were not here, she said “very sad, I would miss everybody”. Community Together CIC has been such a positive experience for Sapheen and we recommend both the Community Cafes and Hub to others all the time. We are certainly glad that we gave that first Community Café a go because it has enriched Sapheen’s social life so much."

    Sharon - Why do I Volunteer?

    "I like to give something back to the community and volunteering has provided me that opportunity. I feel privileged knowing I am making a difference just by giving a little of my time to talk, listen and even just give a smile. I never imagined that when I walked into the Hub a year ago I would meet such inspiring kind people. I look forward to Wednesdays and the befriending group as it's like meeting up with good friends. I have volunteered in a local charity shop before but would recommend volunteering with Community Together CIC."

    Claire Underwood, Transformation Programme Manager

    Intergrated Care University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust.

    “ I feel extremely proud and privileged to work with such a professional, approachable, caring, kind, flexible and compassionate organisation that is Community Together CIC.  Without such organisations and relationships I would not be able to successfully do my job.  The truly valuable difference they make to people’s lives who they touch is priceless.  This can include to name a few professional workers, voluntary workers and service users.  I have had the pleasure of working very closely with them for the last 5 years in a number of roles locally in the NHS.  Particularly my current role for Burton Hospitals and my previous role as Area Manager for Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent NHS Partnership Trust.  I am delighted to continue to work with them on a number of projects and to create new ways of working to support the local populations needs in a creative and innovative manner.  Community Together CIC are essential to ensure the sustainability of NHS services due to a number of reasons including the increasing demand for services, the ageing population, people living longer and the increasing challenge of the loneliness and social isolation of vulnerable people.    The team are a delight to work with and Lee and Steven lead the team with a beautiful manner and approach.  I look forward to working with them for many more years and supporting local people to live healthier, better and more positive lives.  Thank you Lee and Steven, it’s a true pleasure.”
