Southfields Grid Alliance is here to help

The Southfields Grid Residents’ Association, St Barnabas Church and the “Grid Mummies” network have come together, and as the Southfields Grid Alliance are working together to provide a range of support and assistance for anyone on the Grid who needs someone to turn to.  Our three organisations are sharing our long experience, local knowledge, expertise and trusted contacts. Local, trusted representatives are on hand if needed to do anything required for the elderly, vulnerable or self-isolating.  For example they can do things like:

  • Running errands
  • Doing the shopping
  • Having a friendly chat by phone
  • Dog walking
  • Picking up prescriptions

If you need help, however small, please get in touch with the coordinator for this service, Rebecca Watts.  She lives on the Grid and can be contacted on 07734 818540 or email rebeccadwatts@yahoo.com   She’s able to put anyone asking for help in touch with someone trusted, living in our Grid, and who can offer you immediate help.

Only people who are known and trusted by one or more of our three organisations are volunteers.  Help provided will not require any of our volunteers to enter your home.  It’s a truly safe and useful local service.

Can we stress that we’re not replacing anyone’s neighbours, family, local friends or the emergency services provided by Wandsworth Council.  We’re here to help anyone falling between the cracks and who needs trusted local help.  We’ve the full support of our local MP and our three local Southfields ward councillors.

If you know of a neighbour in need, don’t wait for others, just go and offer them assistance.  If you would like to offer help to people locally and potentially across Wandsworth you can sign up via the council’s website at www.wandsworth.gov.uk/coronavirus

We look forward to being of help to you.  We’ll do anything within our power to help people, so don’t hesitate to ask.

Thank you!
