Crisis helpline launched for vulnerable people without support in Rutland
Rutland County Council has launched a dedicated crisis helpline for vulnerable people who have been impacted by coronavirus (Covid-19) and have no-one to support them.
The NHS has been contacting people who have been identified as being extremely vulnerable to coronavirus because they have a serious health condition.
These people are being urged to shield themselves and stay indoors and avoid contact with others for 12 weeks, during which time they can request support to help access food and medicine as part of a national support scheme. Further details of this can be found at: www.gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable.
