Community Hub to support vulnerable residents

Rugby sign (lighter)Rugby Borough Council is preparing to deliver emergency food supplies to vulnerable residents who have been identified as needing extra support. The food parcels will be delivered to residents who have been instructed by the NHS to stay at home for 12 weeks because of medical conditions, and other residents who have been assessed as needing urgent support.

The service has been put in place for residents who are unable to source their own supplies and do not have family, neighbours or other support available from their communities. It will continue throughout the travel and social restrictions that are in place to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

The hub will also provide social and emotional support, while residents in financial hardship will be referred to Rugby Foodbank.

For information on businesses that can deliver food supplies, or to add a business to the directory, see www.rugby.gov.uk/fooddelivery

For information on neighbourhood groups that could support residents in their area see www.rugby.gov.uk/communitysupport

Residents who have received a letter from the NHS and must isolate for 12 weeks should call the number on the letter to register for food and medical support.

Residents who have no other means of support can call Rugby Borough Council on 01788 533533 for further advice and assistance.
