Helpline for Vulnerable Members of the Public
A new national phone number has been launched for people who are over 70, disabled, require the support of mental health services, are pregnant or receive a flu jab for health reasons. This includes the shielded group and the wider at risk groups.
The helpline – 0800 111 4000 – will initially operate during core working hours of 09:00 to 17:00 while plans are developed and implemented to extend it to operate for a longer period each day.
Callers will be automatically connected to their local authority who will support them to access the service they need, such as:
- essential food and medication
- links to local social work services for vulnerable children or adults
- emotional support
- contact with local volunteer groups.
