You may be aware of this already, however a 24 hour helpline has been set up to support vulnerable people in Kent who need urgent help, supplies or medication.

 

The helpline – called Kent Together - provides a single point of contact for anyone in the county who is in urgent need of help during the Coronavirus outbreak. It is a collaboration between KCC, central Government, District, Borough and local councils, the voluntary and community sector, the NHS, emergency services and other partners to ensure help is at hand for vulnerable people. It is also the place to report concerns about the welfare of someone else.

 

If someone is vulnerable and has an urgent need that cannot be met through existing support networks, they can contact the Kent Together helpline at Kent Together or by calling on 03000 41 92 92. It is a 24 hour service.

 

There is more information on this on the KCC website.
