Food supply help and advice for residents
Extra support is available for vulnerable residents
Groups in local areas are offering to support individuals in several different ways, including shopping support and delivery of food parcels.
Support for people facing financial hardship
Free school meals
Low-income families whose children are eligible for free school meals will be offered meals for those children by their schools. If they are no longer attending school due to the coronavirus outbreak, they will be offered food parcels instead.
