Scarborough & Ryedale Carers Resource - Ryedale Community Support Organisation


Over and above our continued role to support carers and those isolated under normal times in the community  - SRCR were asked by NYCC to undertake a wider Covid-19 response role and establish the Ryedale Community Response Organisation in partnership with Ryedale Carers Support and Ryedale Community Transport. 

We have done this with our usual 150% energy  - and so far have supported the recruitment, training and induction of 135 NYCC Community Response volunteers and are offering on-going support to over 320 households across Ryedale district  - this number increases daily!  

Our work extends to supporting many of the local town/village networks as they work to bring together invaluable spontaneous volunteering at a very local level.   

    The Ryedale Community Support Organisation includes:

    • Support for individuals  - for those in greatest need with no network of family/friends to help. We support with Food and Medication collection; supporting with regular telephone befriending and welfare checks
    • Conduit for information to and from NYCC and RDC into the community
    • Information, advice and support for Local Network/Group partners
    • Information, advice and support for the induction, management and deployment of volunteers
    • Central point for gathering relevant local information and updating the new RDC community website page (due on line next week)
    • Signposting to the appropriate National, regional and local helplines/organisations for specialist support
    • Access point for the NYCC Covid-19 Support Fund (available to individuals experiencing financial hardship as a result of Coronavirus  - food vouchers)  

    This list is not exhaustive and is constantly under review  - our lives are changing rapidly but we are here to learn together and help.
