Get Coronavirus support as an extremely vulnerable person

If you have a medical condition that leaves you particularly vulnerable to COVID-19 you may be eligible for support from the government. 

People across the UK who have specific health conditions leaving them vulnerable to this new virus are being advised to 'Shield' themselves from the virus. This involves not leaving home for any reason, and minimising social contact within their home for a period of 12 weeks (this timeline could change as the crisis develops). This can pose significant challenges for individuals who don't have a strong network of support around them. 

If you are following the guidance and shielding yourself, you may be eligible for support to get you through this trying time. You can access this support by clicking here
