Community Response Hub
East Riding Council and HEY Smile Foundation have established a community response hub which will cover the whole of the East Riding and will work alongside charities, voluntary organisations and community groups to provide coordinated help and support for the most vulnerable and in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
People living on their own and do not have a network of family, friends, neighbours or carers to call upon, will be able to call a dedicated telephone number to request support which could include asking for prescriptions or essential food items to be picked up or just a simple telephone call.
Calls will be taken by council staff who will forward the information on to the HEY Smile Foundation for their team of volunteers.
Telephone number: (01482) 393919
Operational times: 9am - 9pm Monday to Friday and 9am - 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
