Woodstock CAN Community Form
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) reminds us that we are all connected and need to support each other. No one is safe until we are all safe.
Woodstock Community Action Network (CAN) is our local initiative of Cape Town Together - a rapid community response to COVID-19. We are people from all over Woodstock (connected to other areas) coming together to self-organise, take local action, and develop ways to share resources.
This form is to connect and activate us! It helps us map our Woodstock Community and find out 1) who can offer help 2) who needs support during this time.
Once you have filled in this form PLEASE forward the form to your neighbours. If your neighbours don't have internet access or data please help them fill this in form (your neighbours include homeless people who live in your area)! We are especially looking for 'Street Captains' to share information and help coordinate assistance for their immediate neighbours.
Thank you for joining Woodstock CAN. We CAN do this together!
Stay safe, stay at home, save lives
