Coronavirus Help & Support
As lockdown continues in our city, we know this is a troubling time. We're all thinking about loved ones, homeschooling, our jobs, feeding our family, and our finances.
Here at Radio Plymouth, we want to support you, and local businesses in any way that we can. To do this, we’ve made this page to signpost the help and support that is available here in our city.
The current lockdown has hit businesses hard, both large and small. If you are business owner and you are worried about how you are going to survive, Visit Plymouth have put together a section of their website providing support and advice which you can find HERE.
Mental Health Support
We know this crisis will affect our mental health. If you need support during this time please call Samaritans 24/7 for free on 116 123. You can also contact them through email if the subject is too upsetting to talk about on the phone. Writing an email can be a calm and safe way to work through what's on your mind. Samaritans volunteers answer each email that comes through to email@example.com
For help with managing your mental health, the Devon Mind team are also on hand to provide support during these difficult times. Please note that they are not a crisis service and are unable to respond in an emergency. You can call them on on 01752 512280 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
There are several community groups currently operating in our city, offering help to those who need it. Throughout this crisis, we will endeavour to highlight them both on air and on our website. If you want us to mention the great work you’re doing, see our contact details below.
If you want to find out how you can help your local community through volunteering, then get in contact with the Plymouth Good Neighbours Scheme. An alliance between the city council and local community groups and charities, the scheme provides a central point for volunteers to register their interest and the skills they can bring to the table. They will be able to distribute volunteers to the places where they can be most effective. For more information follow the link below.
At Radio Plymouth, our team are doing our best to be here for you, keeping you company, playing your favourite songs, and bringing you the local news that you need.
You can listen on 106.7 FM, DAB Digital Radio and online HERE
