Central Government support
Help is available by following this link to the government website https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable
This is for people to register if they have a medical condition that makes them extremely vulnerable to coronavirus. For example, they’ll be able to ask for help getting deliveries of essential supplies like food.
If you’re not sure whether your medical condition makes you extremely vulnerable, register anyway.
This service is free. You can register yourself, or register for someone else.
If you, a family member, friend, or close member of your community are in need of urgent help that is not medical related, then contact Barnet Council through their urgent support helpline.
Phone: 0808 281 3210
This phone line is open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
