Where to get help? St Michael’s Elmwood Rd
Church services have been shut down and Church buildings are also closed to visitors. Many of the churches are live-streaming their services and organising volunteers to help people within their parish who are isolated and need support, be it emotional or practical.

Practical and emotional support
The church has a small team of volunteers who are able to offer phone chats and practical help, as much as they are able. ‘We keep a list of people willing to help others in their street and those who need that help.
