EasyBuild employees signed up to the GoodSAM Responder platform during Covid-19 and have been willingly supporting throughout. The GoodSAM Responder Platform is powering the NHS Volunteer responder scheme across the UK. 750,000 Volunteers are helping those self-isolating due to Covid-19. Once a referral for someone in need is made, they are automatically deployed with a > 99.5% instant automated matching rate. Other organisations such as the British Red Cross are also using the platform.
Jane from EasyBuild has been a great support to GoodSAM Responder throughout lockdown. One of her calls was a lady called Winifred who is 87 years, and was suffering from stress and anxiety along with various other medical conditions. She is house bound and just wanted somebody to talk to and they chatted for about 15 minutes. She is a regular user of the service and has already spoken to numerous Responders so the system works and provides comfort to those in need. Good luck and best wishes to Winifred.
Carol Massay also experienced her first SAM alert during July. It was from a lady called Janine who fortunately was all OK. Some of our other supporters are Alastair, Jen and Franco who have all been delivering food and medical supplies to locals when needed.
If you would know of anyone who may require some assistance or help, please call the GoodSAM Responder number on 0808 196 3646.
