Covid-19 - support and information

Covid-19 Help in Heriot

A group of Heriot residents have organised local teams of volunteers to help during the time that we are all impacted by the Covid-19 emergency. We have created a help and information leaflet that has been circulated around Heriot properties. Everyone should have their own copy of the leaflet. Your leaflet lists a group of volunteers who live near to you with their contact phone numbers. Volunteers can assist with various things such as shopping, urgent supplies, post, prescriptions, transport and a friendly chat.

We have split Heriot into five areas, each overseen by a coordinator. Replacement handouts can be downloaded below by clicking on the postcode link for your area.
