We are working with Solent NHSPortsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group and Portsmouth City Council together with organisations across the city to provide a coordinated community response to protect people as much as possible.

Our initial priority is working with the elderly and vulnerable who are advised to self-isolate.

We are:

  • Working with the most vulnerable who have no support in place 
  • Helping with shopping or food deliveries
  • Providing regular outbound calls/welfare checks
  • Providing prescription drop off support where needed
  • Helping with other issues such as dog walking
