A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
The Bowes Park Community Association (BPCA) is co-ordinating a network of community volunteers across Bounds Green and Bowes Park to support our neighbours during the Coronavirus pandemic. We think it is vital that we provide safe contact and practical support – at a distance – to anyone who needs it. We know other local groups are already setting up support systems which is amazing and heartening to know that we live in such a caring area.
To make sure no-one in our community is overlooked and to use our resources to best effect, we’d be really grateful if you could reply to this email or email email@example.com to let us know:
Many thanks and take care
Emma, BPCA Chair

With the end in sight, the support need isn't going to be over. We have bereaved and long-term handicapped in our midst, and a lot of less vissible psychological damage. It may be useful to get together with your surgery to learn appropriate first aid support skills as the professional services are going to be overwhelmed. The bereavement charity Cruise comes to mind, and I believe St Johns Ambulance may be teaching trauma first-aid. Perhaps our leaders can pull an Authorised Version together.
