How to Get Corona Virus Support in the UK
Important message from the UK Government to extremely vulnerable people.
The UK Government has announced that all people in England who are extremely vulnerable to the effects of the new corona virus will be able to get help. Special arrangements are also available for people in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Go to www.gov.uk to register if you, or someone you know, have a medical condition that makes you extremely vulnerable to the coronavirus. If you qualify, you will be able to ask for help getting deliveries of essential supplies like food and medication organised.
If you’re not sure whether your medical condition makes you extremely vulnerable, register anyway. Someone will contact you and make an assessment of your situation and let you know what kind of support you may be entitled to. If your condition does not make you extremely vulnerable, they will still be able to give you advice.
You can register yourself or someone else, which is good if you have a family member or loved one you are concerned about.
If you know, or have access to, your NHS number, this will be useful to have when you register. You can find your number on any letter the NHS has sent you and on your prescription slips.
If you live in the UK, but not in England, there is information for you too on gov.uk.
But please, please, please do not register for this service if you are not in a high risk group!
This service is a life line for many people in our community, and their health and safety depends on access to food and medication. Please, allow the Government’s support service to be readily available for those who need to isolate themselves during the pandemic.
And if you are one of us who have been forced into hibernation now – you are not alone and we will get through this together. Just hang in there, my friend.
If you have a minute, please consider sliding into the comment sections and tell us something. Like who and how you are, or what you thought of the article or blog post you just read. Ask us anything, and let me know if there’s something else you’d like to read about. If you don’t want your response, or name, to show up on the site, just start your message with the word ANONYMOUS and it will be our secret.
If you’re on instagram, please come and join us over there at the newly launched (this week) Spoonieverse on instagram account.
When you read, share, like, comment, follow and (later on) subscribe, you don’t only make me ridiculously happy and grateful; you also help us show google and other search engines that we exist. This is very important for a small fish who dreams of becoming a whale. =)
After 25 years of anonymous blogging on a number of free platforms, Evalena Styf decided to go pro and put all of her writings on a private wall. In her personal blog, she primarily writes about: personal and professional development; living the dream; and how to go on living, and loving, when everything seems to be falling apart.
Using her knack for storytelling, Evalena dives into a sea of personal and professional experiences to bring a wide range of difficult and diverse topics to the surface. These topics include funkophobia, social exclusion, chafing societal norms, mental & physical health issues, racism, poverty, identity, creativity, nerdiness, lusting for life and longing for death.
