Cumbria County Council and partners have launched a new emergency support service for people at high risk of becoming seriously ill as a result of COVID-19 and who do not have support available from friends, family or neighbours.
To support the new helpline, every area is coordinating a supply of essential food, medicines and supplies which can only be accessed via the emergency helpline or email. The requests received will then be matched with local support and supplies being offered by community groups, volunteers, councils and businesses.
The Emergency Telephone Support Line operates Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm and weekends, 10.00am to 2.00pm.
