Aim

to help our vulnerable community members

This group was set up in March 2020 by, Tim Erridge (Vicar Of St Peter & St Paul), members of the W.I. Michelle Harper, Gill Williams, Zoe Solomon &  Ian Heppenstall, to help and protect the vulnerable people with our community. We are the official group that is recognised on the  North Somerset Council Website. We receive requests for help direct from North Somerset Council, Citizens Advice, Weston super Mare help group, from our leaflets and from this website.

We have received £200 from The Weston super Mare Lions, £100 from Bleadon Parish Council. We are actively seeking grants from various sources to help fund the group.

Our aim is to provide any help whatsoever to the many vulnerable people in our area. We carry out Shopping, Collect Prescriptions, Walk Dogs, Collect essential items. We have connections at all our local pharmacies. We have secured our own Bank Account which enables our volunteers to purchase items without the need to collect cash or cheques.  We make daily visit's throughout or area and are available 24 hours a day. 

We are fully advised on the problems of Social Distancing so, any goods purchased will be left on door steps and no physical contact will be made. We do not enter homes under any circumstances. All our volunteers are local people who have agreed to give up their time to help others.

About Bleadon Helpline

We have received a wonderful donation of £200 from Weston super Mare Lions Club and a further £100 off Bleadon Parish Council.  Thank you so much. Any more donations would be greatly received.

 

Covid-19 is like no other disease seen in recent times and the associated 'lock-down' has meant that many vulnerable people are effectively house-bound.

 

Our aim is to help people in Bleadon Village and Bleadon Hill  and those in surrounding areas get through these difficult times.

We already have an extensive list of people in our community who may require help. We receive details from North Somerset Council, Citizens Advice, Weston super Mare help groups and from within our own communities.

All our volunteers operate a strictly no contact approach.

All prescriptions, shopping etc will be left on your doorstep.

We have our own Banking facilities so that you will not need to exchange cash or cheques in person. We can accept BACS transfers to pay for your goods.

Prescription

If you're unable to leave your home and pick up urgently needed or regular medication, including repeat prescriptions, we can do this for you.

HOW WE

CAN HELP

  • Collecting groceries and other supplies

  • Pharmacy support

  • Support for pet owners

  • Children & young people support

  • Well being support

  • Financial impact support 

The Bleadon Helpline has been set up to provide support to members of our community whose lives are being significantly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. For all of us, day-to-day life 
has for the time being changed in many different ways, but we must all recognise that some members of the community are 
more in need of our collective help. 

With this in mind we have established these six core areas of support that our community-facing volunteers will provide. In some cases we will need to limit the services provided to certain defined groups of individuals or households.
