At this time of crisis, people either stick together or fall apart. And whilst the official advice is to practise social distancing (at least two metres away, to be exact), there’s no doubt this recommendation applies only to the physical side. This is an unprecedented time in history, and now, more than ever, it is important to stick together and care for each other.
Our NHS Needs Us
GPs, doctors, pharmacists, nurses, midwives, 111 advisers and social care staff have been doing an exceptional job in the face of one of the biggest public challenges the country has ever experienced.
Most of us are already getting involved in the national effort to protect the most vulnerable and reduce pressures on our NHS by staying at home and practising physical distancing. However, our NHS needs us. They are looking for up to 250,000 volunteers who can safely help the most vulnerable people in our communities, including those with underlying health conditions, whose numbers have crept up to over 1.5 million people.
At PreciousLittleOne, we care deeply about the health and safety of our community and we know just how much a single action from one person can be the difference between life and death for another. That’s why we are offering 100 business hours, fully-paid, to our employees to volunteer for the NHS.
Our wonderful staff will be able to choose how much time they want to dedicate to this cause, knowing we are fully supportive of their decisions and are fortunate enough to be able to back them up financially either way.
This is an immediate response to this crisis, but if successful, we might repeat this initiative on a regular basis.
