How you can ask for support during the Coronavirus Pandemic
With some people needing to self-isolate while the Coronavirus spreads, this puts a huge strain on people who do not have family, friends or neighbours who can provide non-medical support to them.
Swindon Council is offering a helpline for those who need that non-medical support. To ask for support from Swindon Council you can contact 01793 445500 (Monday to Friday- 9am to 5pm) or email email@example.com
