Community Response Hub
A community response hub has been established by ERYC and HEY Smile Foundation which will cover the whole of the East Riding and will work alongside those existing charities, voluntary organisations and community groups as well as those groups set up on social media platforms to provide co-ordinated help and support.
For those people living on their own and following Government and NHS guidelines to self-isolate and do not have a network of family, friends, neighbours or carers to call upon, they will be able to call a dedicated telephone number to request support.
Support available includes:
- Collection of prescriptions
- Collection of essential food items
- Simple telephone call support
The dedicated telephone number is (01482) 393919 and it will be operational between 9am-9pm Monday to Friday and 9am-6pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
Email requests are also available and all emails should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
