Caring for People
The Caring for People Helpline is available for individuals living in Argyll and Bute who are self-isolating/vulnerable and whose usual support network is no longer available. The Helpline is the Local Assistance Centre for those who have been asked to stay at home for at least 12 weeks.
You can also contact the helpline for business, education and financial advice.
By contacting the helpline, our Caring for People team can provide the right assistance, working with organisations and volunteers in our communities.
If you need help for yourself, or someone you know, you can complete a request for help form on our website or call: 01546 605 524.
Working with communities
We are aware of many local groups that have formed in response to the needs of their local communities and of the existing groups who are doing so much to make a significant difference at this time. Our Caring for People teams, who people may be directed to through the helpline will respond to needs by linking to existing groups, a range of partners or to volunteers.
