COVID-19: Somerset Coronavirus Support Helpline
Anyone in Somerset can also use the Somerset Coronavirus Support Helpline number: 0300 790 6275
The helpline will make it easier for people access any local authority help they may need, including emotional support, in the current crisis open seven days a week, 8am to 6pm.
The district and county councils usual phone numbers will be running as normal alongside the new number for non-Coronavirus related issues.
The helpline won't cover medical advice, for which people will need to continue to use the 111 NHS online service and only ring 111 if they cannot get help online.
Anyone who can't find help within their own local networks and volunteers, can use the helpline to get help and advice around:
- Personal care and support including food and delivery of prescriptions
- Support for the homeless
- Emotional support if you're feeling worried or anxious
- Transport to medical appointments
- Waste collection and disposal
- Financial support
