Asking Everyone To Be Careful….Social Co

Social cohesion is defined as the willingness of members of a society to cooperate with each other in order to survive and prosper. … Social cohesion contributes to a wide variety of social outcomes such as health and economic prosperity.

With ‘thousands’ of well meaning Social Media individuals setting up ‘Help Forums’ on predominantly on FaceBook™ – locally Wisbech, March and Whittlesey….
The majority of these very well meaning people have not been screened themselves either medically or basic DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service)(Ex CRB Check)…..

There has ‘already’ been incidents ‘locally’ where – some within this system has offered to go to the bank and withdraw money onbehalf of the elderly and/or vulnerable.

All I am advising is ‘Be Careful’ – there is an already well established ‘National’ groups who are looking after their neighbours – it is called Neighbourhood Watch – these members have been vetted and in Whittlesey’s case 95% have been in the group for over 10 years.
Besides national and local information the Whittlesey NHW Website has a dedicated CORVID-19 Page.

There are now literally thousands of ‘Groups’ raising money for food (We have Food Banks) – to £60,000 raised for basic soap and washing materials.
