Online neighbourhood support groups

Post by El Cid »

Some of my neighbours and myself have set up a WhatsApp group for our little corner of Sydenham. The aim is to keep an eye on vulnerable and elderly neighbours, share helpful information, and, just as importantly, keep everyone's spirits up.

If a vulnerable or elderly neighbour doesn't use social media, then it might be possible to include a son, daughter, or other relative or friend in the group. In many cases, they might live far away and be concerned.

Anyway, I just thought I'd let everyone know about a small community initiative in the current crisis. We will all pull through it, but we need to support each other.
