Our Care Committee is coordinating the following initiatives for members. Please contact Diane Fine, chair of the Care Committee at email address [email protected], telephone number 011 646 6939 or mobile number/Whatsapp 083 450 2089 in need.
- Recent plans for volunteers to help those in isolation have been made more difficult (but not impossible) by the lockdown. We are calling upon those doing their own shopping to help with shopping or errands on behalf of the aged or ill who are at risk and not able to do this themselves.
- If you’re in self-isolation or (God forbid) have tested positive for the virus, please inform Diane Fine, Care Committee chair at the above contact details.
- The Care Committee has access to a network of Clinical Psychologists who are currently working almost exclusively online and telephonically. Please contact Diane Fine if you believe that such a referral may be appropriate.
