  • We can help the Redbridge community, by providing masks and hand sanitizer to the people. We can also provide food to the most affected people, including the BAME people. Who are statistically affected the most by covid19. This will help lower the covid19 rate within that area.
  • We could set up a centre which provides food, mental support advice on how to deal with the effects of covid19.
  • We could also start up an online video programme, to get lonely people together. This will decrease the feeling of isolation. For example; Small groups of people for general discussion. This will help bring feelings of belonging. This can improve mental health of some people who need this type of help.
  • Strong connections. Helping people who would be at high risk of negative impacts from covid19. In terms of health, outcomes as well as social and economic issues. For example; helping the elderly people, who are most vulnerable to covid19. Another example; helping young people in the community who are being affected more than usual by covid19. Another example would be helping people who are having trouble at home with personal issues, such as; domestic violence, and are stuck in self isolation.
  • Some people are facing a lot of stress in the pandemic, from not being able to find a job, general sadness to not being able to see family; they generally would on a regular basis. These people need support on how to overcome their mental health obstacles. One way to help could be to find online companies that specialise in this. There are organisations which provide online support specifically for people whose health is affected by covid19.
  • One type of way to help is by running errands for people who are at a higher risk of serious illness. This could be local people in our community, who are elderly, disabled or house bound. We can reach out to them and see if they need help picking up groceries or prescriptions. Local social media groups or sites like Facebook or Nextdoor can help us get in touch with the people in need in our area. We can hire a company which can do this, and provide to these people.
  • Currently, it is difficult to find things like toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizer, bleach, rubbing alcohol and disinfecting wipes. We could provide these to a local food bank, essential business, or anyone in your neighbourhood/ community that needs them.
  • Another problem people are facing in the pandemic is the lack of computers. Since schools, offices and libraries are closed. Many people are relying on internet access from home. But not everyone has a personal computer. This is another problem, which is affecting people that we could help with. This would be from our budget. (Only for students).
  • Another obstacle people are facing is a lack of clothing for people in need during the covid19 crisis. And as restrictions start to ease up, there may be more demand for clothes to wear.
  • Good mental health is an asset and is also linked to good physical health. Both of which support positive social and economic outcomes for individuals and society. Mental Health disorders account for almost a quarter of the total burden of ill health in the UK. (Health.org.uk).
  • This suggests that Covid19, and the response to the pandemic, could have a significant impact on the nations mental health through increased exposure to stressors. Exacerbating this, there has been a loss of coping mechanisms for many, and reduced access to mental health treatment. (Health.org.uk). – Hire a company that provides online support. For people facing mental health issues.
  • Housing insecurity and quality is another problem people have been facing since the pandemic.
  • More than two-thirds of adults in the UK (69%) report feeling somewhat or very worried about the effect Covid-19 is having on their life. The most common issues affecting wellbeing are worry about the future (63%), feeling stressed or anxious (56%) and feeling bored (49%).

Pros – Would be good for community, improve health of those people facing mental health issues.
