Rutland County Council Helpline

Rutland County Council Helpline

https://www.rutland.gov.uk/my-services/health-and-family/health-and-nhs/health-and-support-services/coronavirus/crisis-helpline-for-vulnerable-people/

Rutland County Council has been supporting some of the county's most vulnerable residents, who they have been made aware of, for the past few weeks with food deliveries, while the national scheme was implemented. They now want to make it as easy as possible for people to access the support available.

The crisis helpline is available for all people who are 'shielding' and have concerns about their access to food and medicine or they are feeling isolated and require support.

The crisis helpline is also available for people who do not meet the government's criteria for 'extremely vulnerable' but due to their circumstances still require immediate support including vulnerable, self-isolating individuals who have nobody to get them food and medicines and are not in receipt of a government food parcel.

The crisis helpline can be contacted by calling: 01572 729 603 between 9.00am and 8.00pm, Monday to Friday (including bank holidays).

Please ensure that everybody is aware of these contact details or get in touch with the Clerk who will try to assist.
