Support the “Red / Green Card Lifeline” Scheme

During this Coronavirus crisis, a growing number of our neighbours are becoming isolated in their homes. Our Town Councillors have packs of cards with instructions which will show whether you are OK, or whether you need some help. The green side means you’re OK, the red side means that you need help. Please contact your local Councillor for more information https://www.shrewsburytowncouncil.gov.uk/councillors

Here are three simple steps for using the red/green card:

  • If you are isolating in your home and need help, simply place the card, red side showing, in your front window where your neighbours and passers-by can see it.
  • If you are isolating in your home and you’re doing okay then put the card, green side showing, in your front window.
  • If you are able to get out and about, please look out for the red card in your neighbours front window. Either knock on their door if you are able to do so, or contact your local Councillor via https://www.shrewsburytowncouncil.gov.uk/councillors
