We would like to remind you of the Westminster Connects initiative. No one in Westminster needs to feel alone or lacking in food or support. Westminster Connects has been created to connect volunteers with those in need of help during the coronavirus outbreak. Residents and organisations can also contact the Westminster Connects team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
or via the City Council’s website.
A new dedicated phone number is available for individuals who may need help or for people who know of anyone in need of help as a result of COVID-19: 020 7641 1222,
available from 8am to 10pm
seven days a week.
How Businesses Can Help
New West End Company is coordinating the efforts of West End businesses in supporting the frontline staff providing critical services and offering vital support to those who are vulnerable, ill and self-isolating. If your business can support by donating any food, groceries or toiletries, please contact Nicola.Gibson@newwestend.com
The Covid-19 virus is having a significant impact on the residents and businesses of Fitzrovia. We hope you are all coping in these strange new times we now live in.
Westminster Council provides some useful information here.
Also the New West End Company has information for businesses in the area.
There are also opportunities to volunteer via Westminster Council or to ask for help if you are self-isolating.
The NHS has asked for volunteers and although they have had an overwhelming response, it might be you can offer your help to the NHS.
There is also this local group that is matching volunteers and people in need on a street by street basis: Fitzrovia and Marylebone Covid 19 Mutual Aid
The FitzWest Forum Executive will still be meeting virtually as we continue to work towards creating the Neighbourhood Plan for the FitzWest area.
