Sandra White MSP for Glasgow Kelvin

Thursday 2 April 2020

In these extremely unprecedented times I wanted to reach out to you all to say my office remains on hand to help all constituents. Albeit my staff and I are working from home following the Scottish Government, the Chief Medical Officer and the National Clinical Director’s advice however, you can make contact by email at sandra.white.msp@parliament.scot, by telephone (leaving a message that can be picked up) 0141 339 7693 and by post (also being picked up) 1274 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 8AA.

I thought it would be helpful to provide you with some links to information, guidance and assistance regarding Covid-19 locally. The main list of links are on my website at https://sandrawhitemsp.scot/2020/04/02/covid-19-community-support-initiatives/

Guidance and support will be changing frequently as the situation develops. However if you have a particular concern that you would like me to progress for you please do get in touch.

A positive note to take from the impact of Covid-19 is the outpouring of community spirit seen across the constituency. From free taxis for NHS staff to meals delivered by volunteers to our most vulnerable as well as the incredible support to volunteer through the Scottish Government’s Scotland Cares website.

The most important thing we can all do to make a difference, help stem the spread and save lives is by staying at home.
