During the nationwide lockdown and shielding period, the specially assembled Mortimer Village Partnership (MVP) Covid Support Group operated a Helpline to help direct support to residents in need.

The support group also held  a "Listening Circle" weekly via Zoom where people could come to talk and feel heard with several experienced "circle facilitators."

In addition, the support group was able to call upon its volunteers using a specially designed system to nominate those particularly in need and to deliver free meals offered by local pubs or fish and chips shops.
