Melton Community Support Hub

We wrote to you a few weeks ago about the establishment of a Melton Community Support Hub and I am sure that you will have seen our communications following on from this. Obviously the NHS has since identified around 1.5 million people nationally with certain pre-existing medical conditions who are considered at very high risk of severe illness from Coronavirus because of an underlying health condition. Individuals in this category will have been contacted directly by the NHS and advised to 'shield' themselves for 12 weeks and to also indicate if they need any help with food deliveries or medicines. Anyone who has been contacted by the NHS should respond as requested through the NHS website or telephone number provided so they can get the necessary support they need. We don't yet know how many people fall into this category within the Borough but it is likely to be approximately 1,000; though the numbers requiring assistance will be less than this. More »

Using locally held data we have however also identified approximately 7,000 households across the Borough where other potentially vulnerable people may live. This doesn't just relate to a medical need; but also where people may have limited resources or be at increased risk due to their age. We have started writing to these households to advise them of the support available through the Melton Community Support Hub.

The Melton Community Support Hub is here to help those in the Borough who need support which cannot be met by existing support workers, neighbours, friends or family networks. If anyone in your parish need assistance contact us and we will seek to match them with available support in the locality.

Types of assistance we may be able to support residents with could include:

  • Essential shopping including provision of food parcels
  • Working with yourself and partners to facilitate delivery of necessary medical prescriptions
  • Working with partners to enable appropriate social contact
  • Responding to or tackling any anti-social behaviour
  • Financial advice and support including dealing with council tax or rent

Residents can contact our Community Support Hub in the following ways:
