‘Wiltshire Council Hub’ set-up to support vulnerable people during COVID-19

The council has set up a dedicated hub to take phone calls from people who need support during the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

The Wiltshire Wellbeing Hub is available to anyone who is struggling during this difficult time, and our team can signpost them to where additional help is available in their local area – with hundreds of community groups set up across the county providing invaluable assistance.  We can also support with deliveries of food and other essentials.

People can get in touch with the hub by calling 0300 003 4576 and it’s available from 8am-8pm Monday-Friday and 10am-4pm Saturday and Sunday or via email at wellbeinghub@wiltshire.gov.uk/
