BART Community support

We are revising our scheme in BART to help people who may be self-isolating (having to stay at home because of the Coronavirus) or who may just need a helping hand.

Our team of volunteers can offer help with:

  • Collecting food shopping
  • Getting urgent supplies and prescriptions
  • Posting mail or running errands
  • A friendly phone call to check you are ok

We don’t want anyone to feel alone – don’t think twice
about contacting us if you feel we can be useful!

The BART churches and the Parish Councils in Birling, Addington, Ryarsh and Trottiscliffe have come together to offer community support– it’s a village network to give help to anyone who may need it:
