Over 9,500 volunteers have been recruited to help vulnerable people in Herts identified as being in the extremely vulnerable category. Residents who are self-isolating and in need of support can visit www.hertshelp.net, email info@hertshelp.net or phone HertsHelp on 0300 123 4044. Anyone currently using a social care service should expect that to continue, however they should speak to their care provider first or call on 0300 1234042 or check www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/serviceupdate for updates. If your organisation needs help you can visit www.thvolunteering.org.uk/organisations and complete the online form to help determine how volunteers might be best able to support you. If you would like to contribute making PPE, the organisations coordinating the county’s response have created an online guide www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/covid19ppe to help ensure that any Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) offered meets the necessary standards to keep people safe.
