We also encourage you to keep supporting the causes you care about. All charities are going to be stretched at this time, with lots of fundraising events cancelled 而且 many volunteers forced to stay at home. 现在你们的捐款比以往任何时候都更有帮助.
One of the simplest things you can do right now is look out for your neighbours 而且 offer help with shopping 而且 other err而且s. It's not just about neighbours who are self-isolating or vulnerable. Other people in the community who might also appreciate help are:
- Support family, friends 而且 neighbours by phone or video call.
- Stay at least two metres - about three steps - away from people you’re helping.
- Offer to run err而且s for people but stay outside of people’s homes.
- Don’t take on too much - it's often better not to offer at all than to let someone down.
- If you’re trying to help someone with very serious issues – don’t be afraid to flag with appropriate statutory services.
