Caring for Plymouth 

The Caring for Plymouth Support Hub was set up to ensure access to support for vulnerable people who are shielding. 

Caring for Plymouth is a partnership between the Council, Livewell Southwest and a large number of voluntary and community sector organisations.It will ensure that the medically vulnerable and people without support networks are provided with emotional support, shopping, medicine collection and support with paying bills and accessing money.

The Government has currently paused the shielding arrangements.

However, if you are vulnerable and need support, please call 01752 668000.
