A new helpline has been launched
A new helpline has been launched for frail and vulnerable residents to call if they need help during the coronavirus pandemic. East Hampshire District Council has joined forces with Hampshire County Council, voluntary groups and other district and boroughs across the county to set up the Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline. The line can be used by residents who do not have support from families, friends or their local community, and who need urgent assistance with essential food or household supplies, collection of medication, or who are at risk of loneliness. The number – 0333 370 4000 – will be manned seven days a week, from 9am to 5pm.
