Ask for help

Are you self-isolating? Find out how to access a range of support.

What help can I get?

We want to prioritise people who really need help, so please ask family, friends, neighbours or anyone else that you can call on first. We can offer support if you need to:

  • find an emergency foodbank
  • get help with your shopping
  • chat to a friendly volunteer because you are lonely
  • improve your mental health
  • get help with an alcohol issue or stopping smoking
  • ask for advice about an employment issue
We cannot offer financial help via this scheme -  if you are experiencing financial problems due to a sudden drop in income as a result of self-isolating, for instance, find out what financial support is available
