Anyone who can’t find help within their own local networks and volunteers can use the new number 0300 790 6275 to get help and advice around:
- Personal care and support including food and delivery of prescriptions
- Support for the homeless
- Emotional support if you’re feeling worried or anxious
- Transport to medical appointments
- Waste collection and disposal

Callers will be asked to describe the support they require and will be connected with another person for resolution.
The 0300 790 6275 number is being staffed by the five councils in Somerset and will be available seven days per week, 8am to 6pm.
