Kingston Stronger Together

The council has launched a new online and phone service.  

This service is for residents who are self isolating because they have symptoms of the coronavirus or who have received a letter from the NHS advising them to stay home for 12 weeks.  
 
The council will also be directly phoning those they know are most vulnerable. If you are in a vulnerable group and cannot support yourself with help from friends and family they will also be able to offer assistance.

Register a vulnerable person 

Register if you have a medical condition that makes you extremely vulnerable to coronavirus. For example, you’ll be able to ask for help getting deliveries of essential supplies like food.

If you’re not sure whether your medical condition makes you extremely vulnerable, register anyway.

You can register yourself, or on behalf of someone else.
