The Millom Alliance and Better Care Together are launching a new and exciting community project called CHAIN which is available at no cost to everyone living from Waberthwaite to Broughton in the Around the Combe communities.
CHAIN stands for Community Help and Information Network and aims to bring together all of the brilliant volunteers in the community and link them up with people who need a helping hand.
If you have a relative or neighbour that could do with some help, simply contact CHAIN so that we can set them up with a secure Rally Round account where personally selected individuals can offer help with anything from mowing a lawn to doing their shopping.
The main aim of Rally Round is to help individuals stay in their own homes for longer, improve their health and wellbeing and reduce social isolation.
Additionally Rally Round supports unpaid/informal carers by helping them share their caring ‘load’ with other trusted family members, friends, neighbours, volunteers or paid workers involved in the caring situation.
If you have a friend, neighbour or relative of any age that needs help or you would like to support someone in your community please contact CHAIN by calling 07821 546929 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
No help is too big or too small; this is your opportunity to give something back to your community!
