Coronavirus (Covid-19) Support

Our Community Response
In response to the Corona Virus Enfield Caribbean Connexions together with Edmonton Street Watch, The Felix Project and other partners we are working together to deliver food parcels to the elderly, vulnerable and families who are experiencing financial or food access difficulties in Edmonton.

We are in unprecedented times, our elderly and vulnerable to Covid-19 are being asked to self-isolate for 12 weeks, residents displaying Covid-19 symptoms and their household are required to stay at home for up to 14 days, plus the economic uncertainty is triggering forced unemployment.

The lockdown environment means local community networks such as over 50’s clubs are closed, family and friends are being told to stay at home, online grocery shopping takes weeks under the weight of the demand and social-distancing is resulting in lengthy queues outside shops waiting to buy food.
