Information for those self-isolating or shielding

If you or a family member are self-isolating or shielding, it is important that you are aware of the increased risks at this time, and who you can contact for support:

  • If you need help or support at this time, try to use existing or trusted community groups
  • Is there a trusted family member, friend, or neighbour who could help?
  • If you are struggling with managing at home and need support for basic things like food, and have been unable to get help from family, friends, or local community groups, you can click here to contact Northumberland Communities Together (Telephone: 01670 620 015)
  • If you are not sure about an offer of help, do not answer the door; ask the person to leave their details and talk to someone you trust
