THOSE who are having to self-isolate can get help from the council if they haven’t got the support they need from family or friends.

Worcestershire County Council has launched a community action campaign as part of the ‘Here 2 Help’ project.

A new form has been created on the website for residents to fill in if they need non-urgent help and cannot get that support from friends, family or neighbours.

A phone number has been set up to help those who can’t access the internet, to fill out the form. The dedicated number is: 01905 768053.

This can be used Monday to Sunday between 8am and 8pm.

Residents who have received a letter from the NHS asking them to self-isolate for 12 weeks and are deemed extremely vulnerable, can also use this number to request help with care, medicine and support with daily living.
