Don't struggle in silence Warwickshire residents urged

Leamington Editorial 24th Apr, 2020   0

THOSE struggling to cope are urged to access coronavirus support available in Warwickshire.

Councils, police, NHS, community and voluntary groups are working together to support residents throughout the Covid-19 crisis.

Those identified as extremely vulnerable by the health service can receive council support, but other help is also available from local services and volunteer groups.

Warwickshire County Council chief executive Monica Fogarty said: “We want to reassure people that we are here to help them, especially the most vulnerable. Older people, families, care leavers and other vulnerable groups with no support at this time are encouraged to get in touch with us so we can ensure they are not facing the challenges of Covid-19 alone.




“Our local services can help people directly, provide a range of information and help access emotional, financial and practical support. In addition, we can connect people to local networks to make sure they have access to essential supplies and medication. Our offices may be closed but our services remain open, and we are totally committed to supporting our most vulnerable residents through the current situation.”

People over 70, those with underlying health conditions, suffering coronavirus symptoms or facing issues related to isolation should call 0800 4081447 for support.
