Helpline for vulnerable people in need of vital support in the Dorset Council area

* Please share this information with residents of your town or parish council *

Many vulnerable people in Dorset will have recently received a letter from the NHS, telling them they are at high risk of serious illness if they catch coronavirus and advising them to stay at home and strictly self-isolate for 12 weeks.

Anyone who has received this letter from the NHS and who does not have friends or family to help get them food, medicine and other essential supplies should call our helpline on 01305 221022, (lines open 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week).

We will arrange for essential supplies to be delivered.  Alternatively, email
