The NHS is directly contacting people who fall into the extremely vulnerable group to provide further advice on how to protect themselves and about what support they need. Individuals needing support should contact the Covid-19 Support Hub on 0191 424 7575 so that support can be put in place.
Support will be tailored for individual needs and will include help with essential food and medicine deliveries as well as additional care if they live alone and don’t have family, friends or social care services to support them.
The support will also include regular welfare checks by the Council as well as signposting to financial or welfare support, befriending services, mental health and third sector support.
