British Red Cross Hertfordshire – Response to Covid-19
What we are doing:
- Support for the NHS – Our services ensure people are supported on their return from hospital and once they are home. Crucially, our support helps to ease the strain on the NHS by freeing up hospital beds.
- Vulnerable and Elderly - We know that the elderly and those who are already lonely will be hardest hit by this crisis. Our initial focus will be supporting individuals over the age of 70 and those who have underlying medical conditions
- Groups that are 'Off-Grid' - We are rapidly planning a national distribution of cards, pre-loaded with cash to our most vulnerable to make sure they can support themselves and their families through this difficult period. Sourcing emergency accommodation for destitute, homeless refugees and asylum seekers who are unable to self-isolate is another key challenge.
