We offer a shopping and prescription pick up service to those who are unable to or have concerns about going to the shops given the current situation. Service users are matched with a volunteer who provides them with their weekly shop based on what the service user has told us that they want. Payment for shopping is arranged with each individual in such a way that will suit them but that avoids any exchange of cash. This service is subject to availability of volunteers. If we cannot provide a volunteer, we will try to help to find support from elsewhere.
