Help for Residents

The Government’s shielding advice is changing.

From 1st August shielding will be paused. Instead, the Government is advising the adoption of strict social distancing rather than full shielding measures. This is because Government believes that the risk is reduced due to lower levels of coronavirus in the community.

Find out more about strict social distancing and the support available to people who were shielding.

Ealing Together food parcels will also stop. If you have been told to self-isolate by Test and Trace and you are worried about how you will source food/essentials, call the council for advice on 020 8825 7170. We may be able to help with securing an online food delivery slot or putting you in touch with local volunteers who can collect the shopping you have paid for on your behalf.

Residents in financial crisis who cannot pay for food can also call 020 8825 7170. They will be able to put you in touch with the Local Welfare Assistance team who can provide support and advice on benefit entitlements, debt advice and jobs and skills. They can also arrange a referral to Ealing Foodbank if required.
