Contact details for obtaining support during the COVID-19 pandemic
|Maldon Community Coronavirus Response||Essex Welfare Service|
|Maldon and District CVS in collaboration with a range of community partners, have set up a service to offer support to yourself (or someone else in need) if you are currently self-isolating or restricting your activities, regarding getting food and other supplies (including children's needs), prescriptions, pet care, local information or social contact.
Please call 01621 851997 or visit their website.
|Essex County Council has set up a new service to help vulnerable people in our community who are staying at home and are in need of support during the coronavirus period. The Essex Welfare Service is for people who are unable to access the support they need at this time from either family or friends, or from their local district area support groups. Essex Welfare Service is not an alternative to existing services which may be overwhelmed with extra demand resulting from the effects of the Government's stay at home advice.
Please call 0300 3039988 or visit their website.
We are aware that residents are being contacted by an array of support services and organisations. Therefore, we are providing guidance on phone numbers which are not fraudulent and are there to provide genuine support. These are the numbers that we are aware of, there will be other genuine numbers that are available, and we will update this list as soon as we are aware.
Protecting yourself and others from COVID-19
