Detailed below are links to information about the help and support available while self-isolating due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), and any other help you may be entitled to.
Wealden District Council Community Hub
Wealden District Council has set up a Community Hub for vulnerable people who need support to allow them to stay at home. These are people who are unable to receive essential supplies by online deliveries or through family, friends and neighbours.
I am, or I know someone who I think is vulnerable and needs help that is not available to be provided by family, friends, neighbours or carers – what do I do?
If they need help immediately with a health concern call 111 or 999 in an emergency.
Visit the Community Support page to find out how you can access the Wealden Community Hub if you need it.
