Help for vulnerable residents

The government has already been in touch with the most vulnerable people in the district who need to self-isolate for the longest period during the pandemic. If you've received your letter or text message from government, you can register to receive help with food and prescriptions.

We know that there are residents across the district who aren't on the government's list but are in isolation and may need some additional help. We've been in touch with everyone who we know require support. In the first instance, you should speak to friends, family or neighbours where possible and ask for their help. This is so you remain safe within the community. Your family members can also help with making online payments where necessary.

If your family, friends or neighbours can't help please contact North Yorkshire County Council on 01609 780780 or our customer services team on 01423 500600.

We continue to work with our statutory partner organisations and colleagues in the voluntary sector to establish ‘community support organisations’ across the district to provide local help.
