COVID-19 Community Call Helplines
Each local authority (council) has established a Community Response Forum to coordinate COVID-19 related community supports.
As part of this, each local authority has established a helpline that vulnerable people can phone if they are looking for basic services such as delivery of food or meals, or transport for essential trips.
Here is a list of each local authority’s helpline phone numbers.
