BERA residents have been thinking about how they can help neighbours who are more vulnerable and may need assistance with shopping or other issues. Many are helping friends and neighbours, and/or are setting up local support groups to support neighbours they may not already know.
But this won't provide for all such people in the Estate. We have therefore established a network of volunteers and street connectors across the Estate who are willing to organise and provide such help. If you are such a person in need on the Estate, then please call your street connector, who will do what they can to arrange help. Each household on the Estate has received a leaflet explaining how this works, and giving contact details of their street connector.
There is also a Bath-wide group established with BathNES support, called 3SG ,which has established a helpline ( 0300-247-0050) available to needy residents. This is less local but can access a wider range of help.
You can see more detail about the 3SG helpline , and other related news, here.
