From today, a new helpline is up and running for frail or vulnerable residents who do not have the support of families, friends or their local communities and who urgently need assistance with essential food or household supplies, collection of medication, or who are at risk of loneliness.

‘Extremely vulnerable’ are those who are socially shielded and should have a letter from the NHS and those who are vulnerable for other reasons (e.g. over 70, frail or have other health issues) – where people do not have their own support networks.

The Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline – HantsHelp4Vulnerable – can be contacted on 0333 370 4000. The helpline is available seven days a week, from 9am to 5pm.
