COVID-19: if you want to help, or need support
If you need support
The council is working with Halton and St Helens Voluntary and Community Action to coordinate support to help to the most vulnerable members of our community and those who need our help during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
If you have received a letter telling you that you are an ‘extremely vulnerable’ person, or you are self-isolating because you, or someone in your house have symptoms, and you have nobody to support you, we can help you.
We’re to support with food delivery and/or medical needs. We’re also here to be a friendly voice and sympathetic ear if that’s what you need.
Please complete our
online form and one of us will get in touch.
If you’d prefer, you can call us on 0151 907 8363 (8am to 8pm everyday). Outside of these hours,
if it is an emergency you can call us on 0345 050 0148
If you want to help
We’re looking for people to come forward to work with us to support our community. As one of our Street Champions, you will be matched up with people who live close to you who need a bit of help.
Carrying out the role of a volunteer is classed as essential work/travel, so is permitted as long as you continue to a keep 2m distance.
If you drive and have a car, that’s great, but if not, you can still offer valuable support from your sofa, by making calls to check people are ok.
