If you are self-isolating after testing positive for Covid-19, or for coming into contact with someone who has, Sefton’s self-isolation support service is there to help you. This useful service includes Sefton Council, local NHS Client Commissioning groups and local volunteers with Sefton CVS.
Under the banner of ‘Isolating, not Isolated’, the service recently launched a campaign to encourage local residents to get in touch if they need support. You can call the service on 0345 140 0845, making sure you choose OPTION 3 to speak to a member of the team as quickly as possible, to receive advice, support and guidance with the following:
– financial support if you are on low income and unable to work from home (Test and Trace Support Payment Scheme);
– accessing food, whether through priority delivery slots for your grocery shopping or access to your local foodbank;
– help with mental health as you deal with loneliness and boredom;
– your caring responsibilities.
