A letter of introduction from the group is published below

Hello,

We hope you are doing okay during this difficult time. We are Earlsfield Together, a community of neighbours working to bring together people to care for each other during the Covid-19 pandemic. We work with our local MP, councillors and accredited groups in Earlsfield and our goal is that everyone in Earlsfield is cared for and no one feels alone.

We know that for some of us, things are especially tough right now, and we want to make sure you are aware of the resources available from some local organisations and charities.

They can offer assistance with food, clothes for children, laptops for home schooling, mental health support, a friendly ear and more. Sometimes it can be hard to know where to start, so we’ve put together a list on the back of this letter. Perhaps you might know someone else who would find it useful – if so, do pass it on.
