Services During the Coronavirus Epidemic
PEP is currently working in conjunction with 'Scran Academy' in delivering hot meals to the local area. Ensuring that local vulnerable people are identified so that aid parcels and hot food to can be distributed.
We are not providing shopping for individuals, but are delivering food parcels and hot meals, so that people can enjoy a nutritional meal every day of the week.
We are currently taking referrals for this service.
Additionally PEP would like to offer support to older people and others who have used PEP services in the past. If you are feeling lonely and would like to reach out to just have a chat with someone: Please contact us and leave you name and number; by telephone, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact us through FaceBook at the PiltonEqualitiesProject.
We will ensure that someone contacts you back to help reduce the worries that being isolated can bring.
Please stay safe, stay at home to help protect the NHS and save lives.
