"Good to see this conversation.
It would be great if estate could coordinate something if possible.
I am self isolating at the moment so can't help in any physical way but would like to keep connected with neighbours"
"Contact Estate office
The barbican have got groups for each house .
Maybe we could all do that too.
They could send a letter out for volunteers to help shopping etc
The app for our area called Nextdoor is useful"
"This is a great idea. I suggest we contact the Estate Office to find out if there are any plans being led by the Housing Department. We should probably also coordinate with the local supermarkets and pharmacy, as they may turn volunteers…"
"Good one Lee
Happy to help too
Does anyone know how to reach people in such cases?
