A dedicated telephone line has been set up to support residents self-isolating due to the Coronavirus (COVID -19).
The Trafford Community Response Line gives residents a direct line to the help they need to get through their period of self-isolation due to the virus.
It has been set up by a number of key Trafford organisations including Citizens Advice Bureau, Trafford Council, Trafford Housing Trust and voluntary sector infrastructure organisation Thrive alongside a range of enthusiastic and committed local community groups who have mobilised to help.
Residents can call the number on 0300 330 9073 for help with shopping, telephone support and food parcels. Callers to this number, which will be operational from Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5.30pm, will be signposted to one of five Trafford Community Response Hubs in Altrincham, Gorse Hill, Partington, Sale and Urmston. These hubs are also being set up by voluntary and community sector organisations based in Trafford.
The community response to COVID-19 has been incredible and there are many voluntary organisations looking to recruit volunteers to help support the work of the Trafford Community Response Hubs.
