All our local authorities have now set up telephone helplines to help those who are vulnerable and need help during the Coronavirus outbreak. This could be advice, supplies, or support.
Action Together is working with Oldham council and Oldham Foodbank to coordinate the delivery of emergency food and other essential personal and household basic items to people in need.
A hotline is now live 0161 770 7007 for people to call for help. The hotline will be open from 9am-5pm on weekdays and 11am to 2pm on weekends.
After calling the helpline, residents can expect a call back from the council within 24 hours and a package in the following days.
Four new hubs have been established across Rochdale in a move which will see the council and Link4Life work with partner agencies, volunteers and community groups.
People needing to access support through the community hubs can call 01706 923685. The out of hours contact number is 0300 303 8875.
All staff at the hubs in Rochdale, Littleborough, Heywood and Middleton, will be trained in infection control and practice social distancing while they work.
Council call centre staff are manning an emergency support line on 0161 342 8355 to talk residents through the support available and any necessary arrangements.
Voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) organisations in Tameside will be receiving extra support from Action Together.
