Coronavirus Emergency - Help and Support in Kesgrave
The support network is not going to go away.
Support at a District Council level (apart from Home but Not Alone for Clinically Extremely Vulnerable) has ended and we want to reassure you that the current support network will continue to support our community as long as it's needed.
For Kesgrave Residents the Town Council is now taking the lead role.
You can contact the Town Council on:
- 01473 625 179
- email email@example.com
NB The office is usually manned Mon-Wed and Fri mornings but is now closed to the public until further notice but the phone system and emails will be checked as often as possible.
If you require support out of hours (collection of prescription, urgent food supplies) please telephone 07562 296609.
This support applies to any, new or previously supported, residents who need our support at any time in the future and covers - medication collections, weekly shopping, arranging chats, collecting goods from local businesses eg Kiln Farm, Post Office, Kesgrave Market, Kesgrave Butchers. We will also try and point you in the right direction for anything else we can help you with.
The latest support information is provided below.
From 5 Jan we are in Lockdown 3.
