In this ever evolving situation, Hertshelp are able to get aid to those where support networks are beoken & they are cut off.
Our community navigator service can assist with shopping for the essential items – they will not be able to support buying specific items or large shopping lists but can get the basics.as They can also support with prescription pick-ups where possible. They currently have an approximate lead time for contact of 48hrs, but we cannot guarantee everyone will be contacted in this timeframe due to the fluidity of the situation & capacity of staff.
The support can also help those carers of others who are under pressure, they may be struggling to do a shop online, not have access to essential items or become isolated themselves during this unprecedented event.
If they have a specific health condition, such as COPD, then you are able to be registered on the vulnerable persons register at https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable Health conditions list:
