Newsletter for the South Lakeland Area – Issue 3

 

This is the third edition of a regular newsletter aiming to give information, advice, guidance and details of useful contacts during these challenging times. The most up to date information is available on the Cumbria County Council website at cumbria.gov.uk/coronavirus/landingpage.asp.

Local Government Information

Useful links:

Please note that Cumbria County Council has now temporarily closed all of its buildings to the public and will no longer provide non-essential ‘face to face’ services.

Alternative contact can be made online by visiting www.cumbria.gov.uk or by phone, call 01228 606060.

Emergency support helpline update

The Emergency Support Helpline is continuing to provide support 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.

Those at high risk include people aged over 70 years, pregnant women and those with underlying health conditions who should be protecting themselves by staying at home. The majority of these people will already be receiving support from family, friends or local voluntary groups with tasks like shopping or collection of medicines if they require it. However, we know that a small number of people will not have this support. If they have no alternative, these people call the Freephone number to request help with getting food, medicines, essential supplies and home deliveries.

How to contact the Emergency Support Helpline:

 

  • Phone – The emergency telephone support helpline is 0800 783 1966.
  • Online – COVID-19 online support form
  • Email your request for help to COVID19support@cumbria.gov.uk

Further details about this support service can be found online at Cumbria.gov.uk

The telephone call centre operates Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and 10am to 2pm at weekends. The service also accept referrals from members of the public who may be concerned about people in their community.

 

Voluntary and Community Groups right across Cumbria are working hard to support the most vulnerable in their community who have no other support network, to ensure they receive assistance with grocery shopping and pharmacy orders. The county council will continue to support these groups, providing advice and guidance as necessary.

Members of the public, volunteers and local businesses can also help spread the word and download a pack of useful resources to print and share at www.cumbria.gov.uk/coronavirus
