Support for People Team

Falkirk Council Support for People Team can assist those who are most vulnerable in society as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. If you are looking for health information or advice on COVID-19, including how to manage symptoms and stay at home advice, please visit NHS Inform.

The team can assist those who need help to access food, medicines/prescriptions and other essential services. This will be prioritised for those who have no other way to access these. This may be because you are self isolating, shielding for health reasons or other personal circumstances that prevent you doing this.

The team will put you in touch with support providers in your community, who can help. This includes voluntary groups.

This service is only for those who do not have other means of accessing these services. If you have family, friends, neighbours or other services assisting you, then please continue to use these.

Request help

Alternatively, you can call 0808 100 3161 and your request will be dealt with by the team.

Lines are open every day, including the weekend, from 9am to 6:30pm
