Coronavirus (COVID-19): Community support
Thank you for contacting us to tell us about your needs during the coronavirus outbreak. You can fill in a quick and simple online form to request community support - but please read the following page before you do so.
Adur & Worthing Councils together with colleagues in the NHS and volunteers have established a Community Response team to support vulnerable people who are isolated and in need of help with issues around food, isolation and their emotional wellbeing.
To stress we are particularly focusing on people living alone and who do not have any help from family, friends, neighbours or a professional health carer.
If you are in these categories please use our online form (below) to answer some simple questions. If you cannot do so it is fine to ask a family member, friend or neighbour to do it for you.
Once you have filled in this form your needs will be assessed and if deemed appropriate passed to a Covid Connector who will arrange to contact you.
The issues that we are providing support for include:
- Help with accessing emergency food
- Help with collecting medication
- Help with managing emotional wellbeing in relation to Covid
Anyone who feels they may be in a vulnerable or who has a relative in such a position who is unable to help themselves can contact Adur & Worthing Councils in the following ways:
or by calling 01903 221222 for support to register for help.
