Information if you are shielding

If you are having to shield you may be looking for support with food, deliveries and finances. 

Our downloadable coronavirus contact sheet [pdf document] includes a list of local groups and organisations who are there to provide you with support to make sure you stay well while you are shielding.  

You may be eligible to get support with your utility bills if you are shielding or self-isolating.
