Access food and other essential support during COVID-19
As of Saturday 1 August the Government’s shielding programme has ended and those who are of clinically high risk to Covid-19 can return to shops and places of worship whilst following social distancing guidelines.
However, we know that some of you may have concerns about maintaining a safe social distance whilst out and about and may prefer to stay at home. Should you choose to do so there are various options for you to access food and other essential supplies.
Support for clinically high risk residents is continuing beyond the Government’s pause in the Shielded Programme – this includes food support and the delivery of medicines
We know that some Camden residents are struggling. This may have been made worse by the current health emergency. You may have concerns about access to food and other essential items.
Camden Council and partner organisations are here to help whether:
- you have been identified by the NHS as someone who is clinically high risk to infection who is choosing to self-isolate
- someone with an underlying health issue who is choosing to self-isolate
- someone who is not housebound but is struggling financially
