Manchester Community Response – new service for our most vulnerable people

Message from Manchester Community Response about their new service for the most vulnerable:

Manchester Community Response

From Monday 30 March, we will be launching new central hub to support Manchester’s most vulnerable people, and help them cope with the impacts of the coronavirus outbreak.We want to help you if you are:

  • over the age of 70, are self isolating and have no support network,
  • if you have received a letter from the NHS advising you are high risk, or
  • you are medically vulnerable according to the government criteria.

We can help with things like:

  • Delivery of food
  • Delivery of medication
  • Combating loneliness
  • Managing fuel top-up payments

Help will also be available for other reasons, for example if you are a carer, care leaver or young carer.

Across the City a community of charities, businesses, community groups and the Council have all come together to make sure you have the support you need during this challenging time.

Get help – 0800 234 6123

If you live alone, are struggling to make ends meet, are self-isolating or generally in need of advice or support please contact us between 8.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Call our central hub to access the support you need.
