Eastfield support

Community Support Update

Coronavirus (Covid-19) has had and will continue to have a huge impact in so many ways. The Hub set-up a temporary ‘Fauldhouse & Breich Valley Coronavirus Help’ Facebook group as a quick response to ensure the community had a way to allow people to offer and receive help and share relevant information. Everyone has been amazing using this group, sharing, supporting and helping each other in these very difficult times. This page has served its purpose and has now been closed

Going forward we want to ensure we can help and support our volunteers and the community with the impact of Covid-19. For many, the impact is life-changing and sadly for some absolutely devastating.

F&BV CDT is supporting the community through difficult times.

In the coming months, people will need support and help in so many different ways. We have opened Eastfield Development Centre, slowly to start and will open more as government guidance changes. We opened the doors initially to ask for food donations to be dropped off. These donations, along with other supplies were used to help everyone in need including, but not limited to, families and individuals struggling financially, elderly isolated individuals, people in isolation due to bad health, illness and disabilities and people with Covid-19 symptoms.

As we move on, we will use Eastfield Development Centre as a ‘central hub’ for help and support, not just food. We will update here and on our Facebook page @eastfieldcentre as we go. We want to ensure Fauldhouse and the Breich Valley have the support it needs and deserves.

Food Support

  • The building will open on Thursdays from 9am – 3pm for emergency food deliveries.
  • On Fridays EDC will be open for The Community Food Larder from 12-2pm. If you need help with food then please get in touch. (Please note that a membership scheme will be running from February which you can register for in January and pay up only £5 for 6 months).

Employability Support

Eastfield Development Centre hope to start a few projects over the coming months, one looking at ways EDC can help with employability. We have drafted a very short survey for those who would be interested in help with employment skills and would be very grateful if you could complete it and share within the community, so that we can offer the best help we can. Please click on the link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/V52CW9G

Eastfield Development Centre staff can be contacted at 01501 229 645, emailed at eastfield@fauldhouse.org.uk or messaged on facebook @eastfieldcentre

F&BV CDT would like to say a huge big thank-you to everyone who has responded to this crisis, to the volunteers and to the local people, local groups who have all rallied round to support their communities. It’s been fantastic! We know there is still much to do as the full impact of the current Covid-19 crisis hits our communities. Together we will work to do all we can to make sure we can meet the challenges to come.
