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 neighbourhood teams to support vulnerable people who are isolated and in need of help with issues around food, money, isolation, mental health, safety and digital access.

For instance those over 70, those living alone or caring for someone, those suffering acute isolation, financial hardship or are at risk of imminent homelessness or domestic violence.

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 one of our Neighbourhood Teams who will arrange to contact you.

We anticipate that many of the issues that people might need help with might include:

  • Help with food
  • Financial guidance - help with your money, for example benefits claims
  • Social isolation - someone to talk to
  • Mental health support
  • Safety advice - scams
  • Support with accessing digital technology

To tell us about your needs please fill in the form below: 

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.

If you are considered to be 'shielded' (extremely vulnerable)

You may also be able to receive additional support if you are considered as 'shielded' (extremely vulnerable) due to a specific medical condition. You may have received a letter from the NHS or registered online.

If you are extremely vulnerable to coronavirus due to a medical condition, please register at GOV.UK
