Caring for Plymouth

Caring for Plymouth is a partnership between the Council, Livewell Southwest and a large number of voluntary and community sector organisations that provides a vital lifeline for people who are clinically extremely vulnerable to COVID-19.

As announced by the government on 31 October, anyone who is deemed as clinically extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 are being advised to reduce their contact with other people and only go out for exercise and medical appointments until 2 December. This group of people includes some already seriously ill people as well as those living with a disability or ongoing medical conditions.

Caring for Plymouth services will be focussed on people who do not have established support networks so that they can access emotional support, access to food, medicine collection and support with paying bills and accessing money. Staff providing the service will have had background checks to provide added piece of mind. 

Need support or know someone that does?

Our staff are already in the process of contacting people known to be clinically extremely vulnerable but if you are in group and you urgently need support, please call 01752 668000.
