What is Caring for Plymouth?

All medically vulnerable people are being advised to stay in their home for the next 12 weeks to protect themselves from the spread of the coronavirus.

This group of people includes some already seriously ill people as well as those living with a disability or ongoing medical conditions.

Caring for Plymouth, which is an alliance between the Council, Livewell Southwest and a large number of Voluntary and Community Sector organisations, will ensure that these people are provided with emotional support, shopping, food and medicine in their homes and support with paying bills and accessing money. Staff providing the service will have had background checks so providing added piece of mind.
