Coronavirus (COVID-19): Community support

We want to make sure that everyone is safe when they are self-isolating. Here are some things to think about if you are offered, or need, support:

  • Try to use a family member, friend or neighbour who you know and trust. If not, try to use existing and trusted community and voluntary groups.
  • Not sure? Don't answer the door
  • If you're not sure about an offer of help, ask the person to leave details and talk to someone you trust about it.

If you do not have support from a trusted person or organisation and you need help, or feel unsafe, you can contact us online. If you require emergency support call us on 0191 433 7112.

Get in touch with us if you need help or don't have support to get essential items.
