Kent County Council has set up an online contact centre and helpline to help coordinate support for anyone in Kent who is in urgent need of help during the coronavirus pandemic.

Is is a 24 hour service set up to ensure that resources are directed to where they are most needed and to make sure people who are not already receiving support through existing services get urgent help.

Who it is for?


People can get in touch if they need urgent help with accessing supplies such as food or medication, and do not have support through existing networks .

The phone line can be used to report concerns you have anyone who you think may be in need of urgent help.
