ERYC support for individuals who are isolating

Support for individuals who are isolating

If you are self-isolating, either because you are vulnerable or because you are infected with coronavirus, you should not leave the house. In order to get essential supplies such as food, you should try to order online. However, some supermarkets that are busy may not be offering delivery slots. However, supermarkets are not the only source of food deliveries and some local shops are now offering this service and we should all try to support them.

If you have family or friends in the area, you could ask them to help.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has launched a dedicated helpline for those who need assistance or support while self-isolating. You can find their contact information below:

Email Address: covid@eastriding.gov.uk

Phone number: 01482 393919

Please ask others to take care when asking someone they do not know for help, because fraudsters are exploiting coronavirus to scam vulnerable people. It is worth consulting this document to protect from scams:
