If your business or community group plays a role in the supply of food or medicine to people in Dorset you are invited to register the details on the Help and Kindness website.
The #DorsetTogether community response to COVID-19 aims to tackle the social and economic impact of the pandemic.
All local businesses or groups that offer food, hot meals or other helpful services to the community, such as: food banks, community fridges and ‘social supermarkets’, farm shops and local village stores, pubs, restaurants and cafes, hot food delivery services or takeaways and pharmacies are encouraged to complete the online form at: www.helpandkindness.co.uk/add-a-listing-to-helpandkindness.
Cllr Laura Miller, Dorset Council portfolio holder for Adult Social Care and Health said, “Access to food and local support services is a key issue this winter and we want to make it easy as possible for people to find out where they can turn to if they need help.
“Some people may be in financial difficulties and need to find out where their nearest foodbank is.
“For others it might be that they are unwell and on their own and need to find out where they can order some hot food to be delivered.
Cllr Jill Haynes, Dorset Council portfolio holder for Customer and Community Services said, “We know there’s so much help and support out there, but it’s not always easy to find. The Help and Kindness database maps and lists all the support from across the voluntary, public and private sectors so that people can find services that are available in their village or town.
“By registering your business on the Help and Kindness website you will be making it easier for people to find your service and helping to ensure no one goes without support this winter.”
