From Brent Council
Helping the most vulnerableFor the most vulnerable, the most isolated and the most at risk of being taken advantage of, the council is working closely with our voluntary and community sector and wider health partners to arrange a more co-ordinated response.
If you or someone you know does not have the support of family, friends or the wider community, then Brent Council has set up a Wellbeing Duty phone line to make sure the most vulnerable people get the support they need.
Wellbeing Duty phone lineIf you are worried about a vulnerable person and don’t think they have existing support, you can call the helpline on 020 8937 6589 between 8am and 8pm, seven days a week.
Services we can offer include:
- Shopping/meal delivery/access to food
- Help with collection/arranging medication
- Outreach and peer support for the socially isolated
We will also ensure that where people need more formal, social care support we will put this in place for them if required and as we normally would.
EDITOR'S NOTE Brent Council stress that the helpline is only for those who have NO other support and ask that it be used wisely.
