Sign Up for a Buddy!

Do you live in Carlton, or one of the nearby villages.  Could you do with some help at the moment?  Maybe you are self-isolating and need your prescriptions collecting? Maybe it would help to have someone pick up some shopping for you? Or even bring round some books.

We will not need to come into your house and can call round when convenient for you. The most important thing is your health and well-being.

If so, all you need to do is sign up with CVN.  We are a dedicated group of local volunteers who can pair you up with a "Buddy".  They will keep in regular contact with you to see if you need anything.  You can contact us by phone, email or use the contact form and we will register you as soon as possible.

The explains The Silent Solution system - the system for victims of domestic abuse who might be afraid of further danger and escalation of harm if they are overheard when calling 999 in an emergency - The Silent Solution.

When somebody calls 999, an operator will ask which emergency service is required. If you are not able to ask for help, your call will be forwarded to a police system and you will hear an automated message.

If 55 is pressed by the caller, the system will detect this. The operator will then transfer the call to the relevant police force as an emergency.
