I am elderly or in one of the extremely vulnerable groups and need additional support?

A:

I have been contacted by many elderly people and people who are particularly vulnerable to the Covid-19 pandemic. I am working hard to respond to everyone as quickly as possible, however I would encourage you to register for the Government’s coronavirus support scheme here. This will allow you to register for support with buying groceries, and for travel to essential appointments.

Southwark Council has set up a dedicated contact line for vulnerable residents which can be reached on 020 7527 5000 or by emailing covidsupport@southwark.gov.uk

Lambeth Council’s dedicated line can be reached on 020 7926 2999 and is open from 8am to 8pm or by signing up here

If you are in financial difficulty or in urgent need of food, please do contact me at helen.hayes.mp@parliament.uk or by calling 0207 219 6971, and I will do my best to refer you to local support.
