Things you can do to help:
> Print Community Assistance Cards at home, or contact us for printed copies, use these to reach out to neighbours and offer to help and support them in any capacity you can: http://bit.ly/2Ub8vdK
> Phone relatives and friends to make sure they are okay.
> Do not buy more than what you need at the supermarket, and if you are able to pick up a few items for the local food bank, please do.
> Follow latest government advice on social distancing and try to limit external contact as much as possible.
> If you need to check your symptoms, please refer to https://www.nhsinform.scot/ for latest advice, this frees up NHS24 who are receiving an unprecedented number of calls at this time.
Again, we’d like to praise the local community who have come together at this time to help and support each other. You can access community support on the following Facebook Pages and Groups:

FOR OUR MEMBERS
We have created a survey for our members to try and assess the impact that COVID-19 is having on the third sector in Clackmannanshire, please take time to complete it: https://bit.ly/2UoQVDe
We are collating a list of third sector organisations and community groups that remain open during this time. Please let us know if you would like added to this list, even if you are now functioning at a limited capacity. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or message our page.
Our COVID-19 page has a growing resource bank with relevant links and guidance for third sector organisations. View it here: http://bit.ly/3d7bOva
We’re hoping to receive more information next week in regard to the funding package announced for charities by The Scottish Government on Wednesday. We will keep you up to date with this the best we can.
