The Central Hub is taking calls from residents to support people who need help.

The hub is open six days a week - Monday to Saturday - operating between 8.30am and 5.30pm.

The hub will primarily focus on the following groups:

  • People over the age of 70 who are self isolating and have no support network.
  • Shielded (people with certain conditions) or medically vulnerable people.
  • Those who are self-isolating with no support networks (i.e. friends or family)

Help is also available, but not limited to, other groups such as carers, care leavers or young carers. 

A flexible approach is being taken as to what help we are able to offer, however, it is expected that requests for help will fall under the following four categories:

  • Delivery of food
  • Delivery of medication
  • Combating loneliness
  • Managing fuel top-up payments

However, it is important to stress that these categories are not restrictive, and residents will be supported on a case by case basis. 

The number to call is: 0800 234 6123
