Hull City Council’s ‘Hull Helpline’ to support vulnerable residents impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic has launched.
Residents can register their need for support through an online form on the council’s website www.hullcc.gov.uk or call the dedicated Hull Helpline number, 01482 300 307.
The helpline is for those that have no other means of support within the community and have essential needs.
The council anticipates that people may require extra support with certain aspects of their daily lives, including access to essential items and services such as access to food, health and well-being and financial advice.
The online registration via the council’s website www.hullcc.gov.uk telephone helpline is now live. The dedicated Hull Helpline telephone number is available seven days-a-week, 9am – 5pm.
When a person registers their details, their level of need will be assessed and prioritised, with support being mobilised when appropriate to help protect the city’s most vulnerable residents.
Absolutely Cultured is working with the council to co-ordinate a citywide volunteering response with existing volunteers, who have the relevant training and experience to help residents who need it most. If people would like to express an interest in becoming a volunteer to work with and support the existing volunteers, they can do so by registering their details via the hull.gov.uk website.
Hull City Council will deploy council staff from non-essential service areas and work with a range of voluntary sector organisations to support the city’s communities and our most vulnerable residents during these unprecedented times.
If you need support then we urge you to contact the helpline or register details online so that the information can be recorded and assessed.
Everyone can help each other by checking on your family, friends and neighbours to see if they are well or if you can help them in anyway. It is also crucial that we ALL follow the latest Government guidelines and stay at home.
