The Basildon Community Hub continues to support the vulnerable people of the Borough
The Community Hub of which BBW CVS is part of will continue to support the most vulnerable and isolated residents in our community with food and medication deliveries, hearing aid battery replacement and a befriending service, as well as giving general advice and guidance to borough residents during COVID-19.

The free NHS COVID-19 app is a vital part of the NHS Test and Trace service in England, and the NHS Wales Test, Trace, Protect service.
Based on an Apple/Google privacy framework, the app has a number of tools designed to help us protect those we love, including: contact tracing, checking into venues through an in-built QR code scanner, risk alerts by postcode, a symptom checker and test booking.
Downloading the app is the fastest way to see if you’re at risk from the virus. The faster you know, the quicker you can alert and protect your loved ones.

ECC comms are now delivering this integrated campaign across organic and paid channels. As part of this implementation they have also produced the attached toolkit to help partners support and amplify the campaign. It includes an explanation of the campaign focus, information on the three campaign strands – each with a messaging framework, plus social media posts and newsletter content together with a We Transfer link to creative assets.
