Essential Information during Covid19

In order to respond to enquiries we receive from older people across Gloucestershire, AUKG have been collating an Essential Information resource. This pulls together in one place current information about key services and support available during Covid-19 outbreak. The information ranges from national resources and countywide provision through to what some neighbourhood shops are able to offer. It is updated daily, and enables our staff team to provide the most up to date information to older people.
The resource is ordered by Gloucestershire district and by common issues to aid access to useful information.
We have been receiving lots of requests to share this resource from other organisations in Gloucestershire. We are happy to share the information we have collated to avoid duplication of effort and ensure that as a county we are all able to provide the best response to people who contact us for support.
The value of this resource increases:
1) The more people who have access to the resource to use in supporting local people
2) With the more up to date information that we hold
As such we have an offer and a request for you.
Our Offer: If you would like to have access to the resource pack, we will be pleased to email you a copy – we plan to update and reissue at least weekly. To receive the pack all you need to do is reply to this email with the message YES PLEASE and we will add you to the distribution list.
Our Request: Please could you send details of any useful information through to us at EssentialInfo@ageukgloucestershire.org.uk. This might be info about a service you provide, or something that you hear or know about locally. We will collate all the information received and continually update the resource pack.
You don’t have to submit any ‘essential info’ to receive the resource pack. Neither do you have to ask to receive the pack if you provide us details of some Essential Info.

Our hope, though, is to co-ordinate a jointly created resource pack that all of Gloucestershire can benefit from as we respond to this challenging situation together.
Very Best wishes
