Support with Shopping

From 16 August 2020 those who were previously advised to shield can go to a supermarket or shops to buy food, but should stay 2 metres or 3 steps away from other people. You can also shop online, and supermarkets are continuing to prioritise online shopping slots for those who were previously asked to shield.

 

Below are some other options available to you: 

 

  • Aldi

    Aldi is offering a food parcel filled with 22 food items and household products. The parcels are available to order online for contactless home delivery.

Stay safe when accepting help

If you are using any voluntary service always remember your health and safety should always come first

  • Keep your distance, goods can be delivered to your doorstep, do not take them directly from people

  • Do not hand over cash to unknown volunteers, apart from on receipt of goods

  • Think about who you are giving your prescriptions to for collection, use a trusted service, friend or someone you know wherever possible

  • Do not allow people into your home unless providing essential care from a trusted service
