East Cambridgeshire District Council
East Cambridgeshire District Council has established a support hub and will manage requests for assistance to ensure the most vulnerable members of the community can access help as soon as they need it.
Volunteers and support groups who come forward will be linked with over 70s and others identified as vulnerable, to assist the most at-risk groups during the outbreak.
The hub will also focus on signposting access to food, medicines and other supplies, as well as organising friendly phone calls to anyone feeling lonely.
The council will also liaise with other voluntary and community partner organisations to ensure other needs, including health and social care, are met as quickly as possible.
Anyone who needs help can contact the co-ordination hub by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01353 665555.
The call centre is open between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday.
