Wiltshire Wellbeing Hub expands

By WC

The Wiltshire Wellbeing Hub is taking on an additional role from 1 April.

The hub has provided support, guidance and signposting to assist those at highest risk of serious illness if they contract COVID-19 - the clinically vulnerable and clinically extremely vulnerable.

Wiltshire Council has teamed with volunteer groups, voluntary and community sector and the food industry to help in providing access to essential goods and facilities for those in need.

From 1 April the Hub will take on an additional role of supporting those self-isolating due to a positive test or as a close contact where they don't have friends and family to help. The Hub will be able to provide advice or support.

People requested to self-isolate because of a positive test or due to being a close contact of someone with COVID-19 are required to self-isolate for 10 days. People need to self-isolate from the day the first person in their household started symptoms and for the next 10 days. This means to not go to work, school or public areas or use public transport or taxis. People are only allowed to leave home to get the test if they need to but should observe strict social distancing advice and return immediately afterwards.

People should consider plans in advance for self-isolating and consider how they can support family, friends and neighbours who need to self-isolate. Those who are self-isolating are contacted by Test and Trace and if self-isolation presents difficulties and they do not have family or friends who can provide support they can speak to the hub to access support.

The Wellbeing Hub can:

The Hub is available Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm and on Saturday from 10am to 4pm on 0300 003 4576 or email wellbeinghub@wiltshire.gov.uk . There is also a COVID-19 community groups directory which can provide help and support http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/media/4270/Community-Groups-Directory/pdf/Directory
