Birmingham wide support
Birmingham City Council - Emergency Community Response hub
The council have launched an emergency community response hub to provide support to our most vulnerable citizens.
The service will prioritise those in critical need who have received a letter from NHS England stating they are in a priority group or those that are self-isolating for shorter periods but are unable to rely on family or friends for adequate practical support.
This may be in relation to emergency food supplies and social contact. Follow this link to complete online request form or call 0121 303 1116 (Mon-Fri: 9am-5pm).
To communities to understand the guidance and protect themselves, families and communities, we have produced guidance in various formats.
Local contact hubs
Contact points across the city where you can talk to someone about what is on offer. The contact points are based around the constituency you are in (which area your MP represents). If you are unsure which one you are in you can use this tool to work it out from your postcode.
