    Have you made contact with your local Volunteer group?  Your GP or local church should be able to put you in touch, and they are being incredibly helpful in  most areas.

    Hi @brenda1964 and welcome to the community.
    Can I ask if you've put in for a PIP appeal, or if you have any friends and family who might be able to help you with essentials?

    Hi @brenda1964 and welcome to the Community.  It's nice to meet you.  I'm sorry to hear about your PIP and the fact you are struggling at the moment.  It is a very difficult time for a lot of people.  I wonder if you have thought about getting in touch with a Covid 19 Mutual Group who can help you with things such as going for shopping, posting letters or even just phoning you for a friendly chat.  There are more and more of these groups being set up to help people every day and you can look up your local group here by simply putting in your postcode, so hope this may help -


    Please keep in touch and let us know how you are getting on and if we can be of any further support/help to you then please just let us know.  Please stay safe and well.  All the best.  :smile:
