The Group is an informal group of individual volunteers who are coordinating their efforts to support households in Devauden and the surrounding communities during the Covid-19 pandemic. As well as offering practical assistance the presence of the Support Group in our community will provide people with the reassurance that help will be available for them if they need it.

Around 40 local residents responded to an appeal from the Devauden Village Website to establish the Group and some of these people are coordinating the Group’s activities. The aim is to ensure there is continuity in the voluntary support available to local households who may need it during the coming weeks and months.  As well as covering Devauden we are offering support in Kilgwrrwg, The Fedw, Wolvesnewton, The Glyn and The Cot.

The type of service that the Group provides is being constantly reviewed by the coordinators. So far, our activities have included:
• regular telephone calls to households to check on their situation and offer reassurance that help is available;
• grocery shopping for essential basic items for those who are elderly or vulnerable;
• collecting prescriptions.

Flyers have been delivered to all homes in Devauden and most of the immediately surrounding area. We have also publicised our group through important local hubs, such as the church, Monmouthshire Housing Association and the shop. We have established links with other local groups and national directories.
