Community Support

Our teams are currently working with a number of community support services to ensure the vulnerable within our communities are supported at this time.

A Directory of Services has been created and is updated regularly as we get more information.

Particularly vulnerable residents in Ards and North Down who are required to self-isolate and have no means to obtain basic food supplies are being provided with vital support by their local council through a free weekly food distribution service.

Residents that qualify for this assistance who have not yet been contacted should telephone the Community Helpline on 0808 802 0020 - phone lines are open every day from 9am to 5pm. Alternatively, email covid19@adviceni.net or text 'ACTION' to 81025.

Help us ensure that everybody who qualifies for this assistance is registered by getting in touch - please use the contact details shown above.
