Emergency Action Group Helpline for the self-isolated

We are concerned about the elderly and those with underlying conditions which make them more vulnerable to the Covid-19 virus and are living in the East Grinstead and outlying villages area.

From Monday 23 March a helpline for anyone in one of these groups whose household is self isolating will be set up where they can arrange for some shopping to be delivered, prepared food delivered, prescriptions collected, activities in the home or other small errands.

The number to dial will be 01342 323636 and press 1 if you are in one of the vulnerable groups. You will then be put through to the helpline. This help line will be operating from 9 am–4pm Monday to Saturday.

All our volunteers who deliver are coming from established organisations and will have ID.

We are looking to post flyers and posters but please also spread the word.

This initiative (East Grinstead Emergency Action Group) is being coordinated by several groups and businesses in the town including Age UK East Grinstead and District, the Mug Tree and the Town Council.

We are also providing a list of restaurants and food businesses who are now offering a delivery service.
