Thurrock Coronavirus Community Action
Thurrock Coronavirus Community Action is a partnership led by the council, Stronger Together and Thurrock CVS, working with local organisations to safely coordinate support and volunteers. Help for residents at most risk
Their priority is to help residents who *have received a text or letter from the NHS about 'shielding' *are at very high risk due to underlying health conditions
*must stay at home and self-isolate for 12 weeks *do not have friends or family who can help
'Shielding' means protecting people who are extremely vulnerable by helping them keep all contact with others to a minimum.
