PAT (Penparcau Action Team)

As you are aware the team here at Penparcau Community Hub have been very busy supporting vulnerable and isolated members of the Community during Covid 19 by developing Penparcau Action Team (PAT) so that we can work remotely and still keep services going as best we can.

PAT is a coordinated Hub volunteer community group working in support of and in partnership with the Ystwyth Medical Group, Padarn Surgery and St Ann’s Church providing logistical, organised and controlled priority community support during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We also support St Ann’s church providing them with a much needed delivery service to distribute some food supplies.

We will now be restructuring PAT to focus on the most vulnerable within our community. The team will despatch mainly during the weekend for Food Surplus from the Penparcau Community Hub in our minibus. The main priority must be that of achieving a reliable support system for the community to help counter the Coronavirus pandemic.

Routine is essential, and for the success and sustainable control of PAT we must understand that we are not an emergency service, nor a home help or care group but will provide the vulnerable in the community with support for prescription collections and the occasional drop-and-go service.

During difficult and uncertain times, we can rely on the good within the community to respond and stand tall and support those most in need. For further information please contact Jenny Jenkins PAT co-ordinator.
