Ulverston Resilience (Self Isolation) Group, was set up in 2020 to help the elderly and clinically vulnerable members of the Ulverston (LA12) community during the Coronavirus outbreak. The group is run entirely by unpaid volunteers, and is funded by personal donations and grants. There is a small management committee, and a database of about 250 volunteers.
Sadly, more people, and indeed whole families, need assistance than we would ever have thought. Your donations will be used to provide support for the local community, including those people who are struggling to look after themselves and their families.
The group is currently managing the volunteer stewarding of Covid-19 vaccinations at Ulverston Health Centre, and is also working with Cumbria County Council and the Environment Agency to provide practical support to the LA12 community in the event of a major incident, such as flooding or a prolonged power cut.
