Thank you from NWS

A Thank You from N W S For Your Invaluable Contribution To Your Community

Neighbourhood Watch Scotland (NWS) would like to take the time to thank you for the support and dedication you are providing to your community, through your role as a Coordinator and Neighbourhood Watch Scotland member, especially in these unprecedented times. 

We appreciate that volunteers give up their time and go out their way to ensure the vulnerable, those at high risk and the elderly are looked out for during these difficult times. I’m sure most volunteers don’t realise how much they contribute to someone’s day just by offering practical or emotional support. 

It’s a difficult time for everyone and it’s heartwarming to hear what communities are doing to help those in need. 

Bearing this in mind we at NWS thought about how we can help to support you as a Neighbourhood Watch Scotland Group during this crisis.  Our partners have been compiling some fantastic advice and helpful ideas which we wanted to share with you.

In the link below you will find some suggestions Ready Scotland have complied to help community groups through the coronavirus outbreak in ways that are safe, sustainable and protects the vulnerable.

Age Scotland has fantastic ideas to help lift elderly neighbours spirits - they range from body bingo to sending them a postcard!

NHS have provided a list of tips for those struggling with mental health, low moods and feelings of anxiousness.  There is also advice and guidance for those who know someone that is struggling with mental health.

We hope the above provides some guidance and helpful information that can be rolled out in your communities to ensure no one feels isolated or alone. Communities need volunteers, like yourself, in their areas to ensure this is not the case. Never has there been a more important time to look out for your neighbours and Communities.
