New Hampshire Coronavirus Services

Alert message sent 01/04/2020 14:42:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Good Afternoon,

This email is intended to update you all to a new service provided by Hampshire County Council in relation to the current Coronavirus pandemic. The information below explains what the service is and how to access it -

Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline - How can I get help?

A new helpline is now available to provide information and advice, as well as practical support to frail or vulnerable Hampshire residents.

The Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline (Hantshelp4vulnerable) can be contacted on
0333 370 4000

The helpline* is available seven days a week, from 9am-5pm, and is for vulnerable people who do not have support from families, friends or their local community, and who need urgent assistance with practical issues

The Government has also identified some people who are 'extremely vulnerable' to getting seriously ill from Coronavirus because of an underlying health condition such as COPD, certain cancers and auto-immune conditions, and pregnant women with underlying health conditions. Those in this group will have been contacted by the NHS to request that they should not leave home for at least 12 weeks, and have been advised that if they do not have friends, family or neighbours who can provide support, they can register for help to access food, medicine and social contact via gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable.
 
What sort of help will I get?

The Hampshire helpline is for frail or vulnerable people who need urgent assistance with essential food or household supplies, collection of medication, or who are at risk of loneliness. Please discuss your requirements with our friendly advisors who will ensure you get the help you need.

If you need urgent food supplies, you can expect to receive a food box, typically containing:

Pasta
Cereal
Soup
UHT milk
Long life orange juice
Bread
Apples
Biscuits
Plus urgent household necessities if needed eg shower gel
Wherever possible, special dietary requirements will be met. 

Keeping safe

It is vital that if you are giving, or receiving help, you take precautions to ensure your safety and those of others. We urge all volunteers to adhere to Government's (How to help safely) guidance on how to volunteer safely.
Your local Council for Voluntary Service (Link to voluntary services) will also be able to provide information and support.
If you are receiving help, you should follow the Government's social distancing and hygiene guidance. Do not let anyone into your home, unless you have confirmation that they are a registered professional or representative of a recognised Voluntary / Community sector organisation. Be cautious and curious and ask volunteers for proof of ID.
You can keep up to date with the latest Government guidance via   www.GOV.uk/Coronavirus
If you're worried you have Coronavirus, follow the NHS advice   www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Please remain safe and follow the Governments guidance on Coronavirus which states you need to -
 
Stay at home

Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)

If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times

Wash your hands as soon as you get home

Do not meet others, even friends or family. You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.

Thank you fro taking the time to read this important email. I hope you, your family and friends stay safe and well during these difficult times.

Take care
