Helpline for Coronavirus
A support line has been launched to support the most vulnerable people in Northamptonshire during the coronavirus crisis.
The helpline, which will be managed by the Customer Service Centre at Northamptonshire County Council, went live on Tuesday 31st March.
It allows those who cannot leave their homes under current restrictions and those who are self-isolating and have nobody to call upon for help to request support in getting access to food, prescriptions and other vital services that they require. It means that care can be provided to those that really need help. It applies to those with existing health conditions, those who are pregnant or those aged 70 and above.
Each call to the helpline will be triaged so that individuals receive the care and support that is appropriate to their needs.
The Community Resilience Service will co-ordinate requests for help in conjunction with the district and borough councils, mapping those requests by area and linking them up with local community groups, volunteers and voluntary organisations who have pledged their support.
Those requiring help are asked to call the support line on 0300 126 1000 (option 5).
