LATEST INFORMATION ON CORONAVIRUS
St Helens Council provides the latest information on the virus and local services.
Additional information and support can be found below
Would you like to help people who are isolated or affected by coronavirus?
If so, please register your details on the volunteer portal or call 01744 676767.
You can help by doing things like:
- Delivering food, essential supplies or medication – ensuring you’re following social distancing guidelines by leaving them on the doorstep
- Making a friendly phone call to someone self-isolating
- Offering to walk the dog
When registering, you can also put yourself forward as a ‘street champion’. You can download a postcard and introduce yourself to your neighbours, offering support.
Street champions might also be contacted with details of someone in need who has been in touch with them. You’ll be supported by our Contact Cares team, who can help if someone has concerns about a neighbour or does not know where to direct them.
