Fenland residents are being reminded of the help available to them should they need it ahead of the second national lockdown starting on Thursday, November 5.
People who are in need as a result of the coronavirus pandemic can contact Fenland District Council's COVID-19 Community Hub on 01354 654321, or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, to access a range of services.
The hub was set up during the first national lockdown in March to help support vulnerable people affected by the pandemic.
Together with local community organisations and volunteers, the hub has answered over 2,000 requests for help and offered flexible support as needs have changed over the past eight months.
Help available includes access to food and assistance for those who are self-isolating, providing essential day-to day support such as prescription collections. People experiencing loneliness or mental health problems can also be signposted to local support services.
Cllr Chris Boden, Leader of Fenland District Council, said: "At the beginning of the pandemic the Council joined forces with various voluntary organisations to set up our Community Hub and support all those in need of help. This fantastic support network continues to be there for our residents, and I would urge anyone who is worried to get in touch.
"This latest lockdown will be tough for us all, arguably tougher than the first after months of restrictions and as we head into winter. But we will get through it again and work together to stay safe and protect the most vulnerable in our communities."
A range of other support is also available:
