Forum to Consult Community on Covid 19 Support

Acting at the request of the Uppingham Community Emergency Plan lead coordinators, Uppingham Neighbourhood Forum is to publish a special Covid 19 Edition of its quarterly newsletter and deliver it to every household in Uppingham. The move is in response to concerns that authorities are publishing a great deal of advice and information online, but little on paper. This has raised doubts as to whether some households are not receiving the information and help they need.

Commenting on the initiative, Forum Coordinator and Community Emergency Plan lead Ron Simpson said, “While a huge amount of work is already being undertaken by UppWatch, Uppingham First and the Hopper team, there is always that nagging doubt that a household may have been overlooked. The newsletter will follow up on the UppWatch leaflet distributed some weeks ago and bring residents up to date on what support is still available and where to find it. This includes the Uppingham helpline number 07710 328469.
