Please see the attached poster for revised details of the Catholic Care Community Response Service
In response to the impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Catholic Care has launched its Community Response Service to support those in our Catholic communities who are sick, self-isolating, have been adversely financially impacted or are finding it difficult to cope. (Currently focusing especially on families with children, especially those experiencing financial hardship because of the ‘lockdown’, and also older people in the community.)
The service is available Monday to Friday 8am-6pm
A team of Catholic Care workers (we may expand later to incorporate volunteers) will be available to support parishioners and families in a number of ways:
- A telephone support service. This service will provide a listening ear and a friendly voice for those experiencing isolation in their community.
- A pick up and drop off groceries and pharmacy service.
- A dog walking service
- A supermarket voucher for those experiencing financial hardship.
Please contact us on 07739 975001 or 07739 975008 or 0773 9975009
This service will initially be available in the following areas;
Castleford and Pontefract
