ACE offers support through COVID-19 crisis

ACE Radio, through The Weekly Advertiser and radio stations 3WM and MIXX FM urge community-minded people to help support vulnerable people confined to their homes during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Weekly Advertiser has published forms on page 42 of the paper edition to help get a message to people who might feel isolated through latest social-distancing guidelines to help stem the spread of the disease.

The forms allow helpers to alert or introduce themselves to neighbours and inform them they are happy to help where possible with tasks such as picking up and delivering groceries or prescriptions, other errands or tasks, or for simply a chat by phone.

The idea is for helpers to fill out the forms and drop the information into a letterbox or other appropriate receptacle that vulnerable people can access.

You can also print the forms at home from the above image.
