We have been working with Share Matson, Matson & Robinswood Resident Group through this tough time.
We are helping with anyone who needs advice, refer people over to i.e. GL Communities, Gloucester City Homes and any other organisation we need to contact. We have had people ring us or message us through our Facebook Page. This could be information on what they should do if they are isolating, where they can get help from?
I have been helping Share Matson with delivering Easter Eggs, to children and adults, who are isolating within the areas.
We applied for funding to get some activity packs for children with Matson & Robinswood area, we have delivered in one day 86 packs to children. We had 120 packs. Over the two weeks we are still delivering packs to the children in the area. We have brought another 120 packs to give out to children.
Every Monday we are at Matson Gateway doing Fareshares and delivering if people are isolating. Since the start of Covid-19 we have been putting word out through social media, requesting people if they know anyone or themselves to contact us on Monday if they need some Fareshares delivered to them.
Every Thursday Matson Gateway KIDS HUB is live streaming at 12pm, doing arts and crafts or baking. We have had some great feedback during this and have a good amount of people interacting in the live stream.
