Help for those in need

What to do if you need help and support because you've been affected by coronavirus.

Getting support and help with food

If you are struggling because of coronavirus and need some extra help to get food or support, you can call the coronavirus helpline.

This might be because you're self-isolating, vulnerable, or your work or income's been affected by the pandemic, but the helpline is there for you.

They can put you in touch with support services or local volunteers to make sure you get the right support you need.

Contacting the coronavirus helpline

The helpline - 0333 370 4000 - is open 9am to 5pm Monday to Thursday and to 4.30pm on Fridays (calls charged at a local rate).

Food support to local families

We know that during the half-term holidays, a number of local businesses and local organisations are also offering food support to local families so to help you, we've put together a list of them.

You can find them on our Coronavirus food support page.

The Hampshire Coronavirus Support and Helpline advisers can also help with other issues like:

  • Where to find help locally
