A NEW HELPLINE is now available for individuals living in South Lanarkshire who are self-isolating/vulnerable and whose usual support network is no longer available.

The helpline will help people access food and other essential supplies. The Community Engagement Team within the council have been working with VASLAN to collate activity which is happening within communities, and to make contact with new groups and networks which are developing in response to the current situation.

Community volunteers are playing a key role in supporting the people around them. This includes helping transport essential goods such as food to people who cannot leave their home, carrying out welfare checks where there was concern expressed about wellbeing of someone, and offering telephone befriending to those who are isolated.

The HELPLINE NUMBER is 0303 123 1009 and the opening hours are as follows:-

Monday to Thursday 8.45-4-45, Friday 8.45-4.15 and Saturday & Sunday 8.45-4.45
