Community and Village Agents April update

Spring is in full swing and so is the COVID-19 vaccine roll out! Hopefully mid-April will see the 40-50 year group invited to have vaccinations. If you’re an unpaid Carer you may eligible to be vaccinated now:

  • Somerset Carers. Please do ensure you register with your surgery to let them know you’re an unpaid Carer
  • For those still shielding and extremely isolated until restrictions are further eased, have you thought about joining a Befriending Service? CCS has a new project called Chat to Connect for Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) people. Complete the short online registration form and we’ll match you with someone with similar interests and hobbies. We’re also offering one to one virtual support with phones, tablets, laptops, downloading apps, Zoom and Whatsapp
  • Other options include:

Many organisations have also moved online:

2021 feels much more optimistic as things slowly return to normal – why not use these last few weeks of lockdown to explore some hobbies or interests? You never know what new friendships you may find or a new interest that puts a spring in your step!
