Council hub set-up to support people during COVID-19 situation

There might be some people out there who feel isolated, unable to leave their home to get food or medicine or not sure where to turn, so hopefully our hub can provide a friendly voice and reassurance to ensure people get the support they need

Cllr Philip Whitehead, Leader of Wiltshire Council

Wiltshire Council has set up a dedicated hub to support the most vulnerable residents during the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

The Wiltshire Wellbeing Hub is available to anyone who is struggling during this difficult time, such as people who are shielding or self-isolating and don't have a support network around them or know where to get help.                                                                         
 
Wiltshire Council's team can help provide support but also signpost them to where additional help is available in their local area with hundreds of community groups set-up across the county providing invaluable assistance. 

People can get in touch with the hub via email at wellbeinghub@wiltshire.gov.uk or by calling 0300 003 4576.  It's available from 8am-8pm Monday-Friday and 10am-4pm Saturday and Sunday.

Cllr Philip Whitehead, Leader of Wiltshire Council, said: "We have seen communities up and down the county supporting one another and that resilience and comradery has been inspiring.

"However, there might be some people out there who feel isolated, unable to leave their home to get food or medicine or not sure where to turn, so hopefully our hub can provide a friendly voice and reassurance to ensure people get the support they need."

Wiltshire's dedicated COVID-19 page can be found online which include information such a Communities Group Directory, COVID-19 Community Pack and the COVID-19 Volunteer Pack as well as a host of other guidance and information.
