Patients feeling vulnerable during the coronavirus outbreak are being given the opportunity to connect with a neighbourhood team that may be able to help. Adur and Worthing Councils together with colleagues in the NHS and volunteers are currently establishing neighbourhood teams which will help vulnerable people who are isolated and in need of help with practical issues such as help with food, financial guidance – help with money, for example benefit claims, social isolation – someone to talk to, mental health support, safety advice – scams, support with accessing digital technology.
Cases and support needs are accessed and actioned as necessary: Please visit: https://www.adur-worthing.gov.uk/coronavirus/community-support/
If you are unable to go online you can ring a hotline to register and someone will complete this form on your behalf on 01903 221222 which will be open Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm. You should expect some delays if you choose this option
Once you have filled in the form you needs will be assessed and if deemed appropriate passed to one of our Neighbourhood Teams who will arrange to contact you.
