New Compassionate Community telephone hub to help vulnerable residents

If you need help please call the Community telephone hub.

The telephone number is 0300 2470050.

Please note the lines will not be open until Monday March 30 and please understand we may experience high call volumes and ask you to bear with us during this time. The line will be open from Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm initially with the aim of expanding it to seven days a week from 8am to 8pm as the service develops.

The Compassionate Community telephone hub will see teams from partners including Virgin Care, Bath & North East Somerset Council and the NHS come together to work with 3SG, who are co-ordinating the efforts of third sector groups and volunteers to help people who are most in need with food, mental health, wellbeing and welfare.

Anyone wishing to volunteer should not be in one of the vulnerable groups: over 70, under 70 with particular medical conditions, and pregnant women or be living in the same household as someone else who meets any of the above criteria. They should also not be experiencing any symptoms similar to Covid-19 including a fever or continuous cough.
