Support for isolated and vulnerable residents
If you are clinically extremely vulnerable or self-isolating without support then services in Warwickshire can help you.
For the latest guidance visit:
- GOV.UK - Guidance on shielding and protecting people defined on medical grounds as extremely vulnerable
If you are self-isolating and unable to work you may be eligible for financial support from the government's Test and Trace Support Payment Scheme. Applications for support need to be made to your local district or borough council.
