Voluntary support

There are several voluntary groups that provide free support for people needing help self-isolating (e.g. picking up shopping, sending post, or a friendly chat).
Details can be found by following this website link: https://covidmutualaid.org/local-groups/

Details of a Finchley service are shown below.  They also have volunteers in postcode EN5 and will provide support for people living there.  Phone 07565 321 508, email finchley@mutualaid.co.uk, or request assistance at helpme.mutualaid.co.uk

 

Central Government support

Help is available by following this link to the government website https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable

This is for people to register if they have a medical condition that makes them extremely vulnerable to coronavirus. For example, they’ll be able to ask for help getting deliveries of essential supplies like food.

If you’re not sure whether your medical condition makes you extremely vulnerable, register anyway.

This service is free. You can register yourself, or register for someone else.

Chesterfield road family funday.

It took us a while to get this together as we’ve been so busy. The one good thing about the colder months is we’ve had the chance to catch up on all the things we didn’t manage to get round to. Please enjoy.

On Sunday 31st of august 2014 Barnet Community Projects partnered with residents in the local community to put on a family fun day on our local green space. After a couple of months of planning and a lot of hard work we were all able to enjoy our efforts. We were supported by local business, individuals and other organisations.

CHRISTMAS GREETINGS !

Dear Friends

You are invited to our Community Kitchen Christmas Dinner on Friday 19th December at 1pm. The cost is £1 for a 3 course meal, come down to the Rainbow from 12pm, have a coffee and meet with folks.

As I look back over the year I am encouraged by the variety projects which have been run from the Rainbow centre and the amazing contributions of time and effort that people have given to the community. I love the work of the Lunch Club feeding children and providing good quality activities. I have been especially encouraged by the numbers of young people finding full time work recently, we have worked with some of them for 3 years now and it is good to see fruit from our labour. There are so many amazing things happening there is not time to list them all here. But thank you to everyone who gave so much. One highlight for me was the cycle challenge I did in September, cycling 6 countries in 6 days. It was great facing such a challenge with a group of people and supporting one another to achieve our aim. It is what we are seeking to do here at the Rainbow by helping people work together as community to head towards the future they are hoping for.

I trust you have a restful and fun Christmas – the diet starts January 2nd! Looking forward to working and sharing together with you in 2015.

Steve and all of us at the Rainbow

Christmas is coming at the Rainbow Centre….
