Hello Everyone

So the extreme heat continues for another day or so.  Then we have to look forward to Thunder and Lightening with a reduction in the heat and hopefully cooler nights.

How about if anyone is able to take a photo of the upcoming storms safely and happy to send into me, I will post on this blog, you might even get a prize?  Email tony@ccth.org.uk but it has to be from the upcoming storm not an old photo.

Lightning Safety Outdoors

  1. Find indoor shelter. Get inside the nearest available hard-topped vehicle or building, keepingall windows shut, and stay there for at least 30 minutes after the storm passes before returning outside. …
  2. Get to low ground. Avoid hilltops and open areas. …
  3. Distance yourself from tall objects.

Keep safe and well

Host a play street in your neighbourhood

As part of London Car Free Day, we’re offering you and your neighbours the opportunity to host a play street in residential roads.It’s a great chance to get to know your community and create space for little ones to kick a ball around, play hopscotch or just have fun outside without worrying about traffic.

Car Free Day takes place on Sunday 20 September, but you’ll need to speak to your neighbours and apply soon to get permission in time.

Had a great presentation from Public Health at the monthly Carers Forum and I urge all carers to be aware of the Test & Trace process.

Feedback from the Forum and questions wanting answer are:

  • Questions about what is happening around sewage testing in regard to transmission
  • There are concerns about the recall of PPE, which is at the forefront of Carers concerns. The group would like confirmation on:
  • We need to find out about whether GPs and hospitals get the information on positive cases. This is due to a concern around after care and long term support for people.
  • We need to ensure that communications clearly state that tracing is anonymous

Also raised was the need for the video for testing instructions, please click on link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qHTBlxfNes

Are you bored at home?  Interested in completing an online course?

The courses aren’t a test – there is no grading or time limit. They are a self-help tool designed to keep you well in your role as an unpaid carer. The course bundle includes interactive quizzes, videos, downloads, and worksheets, for you to take at your own pace, whether it’s for 5 minutes daily, or for an hour once a week. We give you plenty of hints and tips on how to acknowledge, rethink and balance the ways in which caring affects your life.

Could you increase your IT skills? 

Do you have difficulty with …?

  • Online shopping?
  • Benefits?
  • Zoom sessions?

If so, then we can provide one to one support & learning.

Email tony@ccth.org.uk for either learning activities.
