Essex Wellbeing Service to help county’s residents adapt to ‘new normal’

The Essex Welfare Service, which was launched in quick response to Covid-19 in March and successfully recruited thousands of volunteers to help support vulnerable residents who were shielding, is building on its success by relaunching as the Essex Wellbeing Service from this month.

Almost 9,000 vulnerable people across Essex have received support during the Covid-19 pandemic from specialist providers and from over 3,000 volunteers.

The new Essex Wellbeing Service, which goes live from 1 July, now links all Essex residents (not only the vulnerable) with the practical, emotional and social care support they need as they adapt to ‘the new normal’ of their lives as lockdown eases. Volunteers will continue to have an active role.

The helpline for Essex Wellbeing Service is already live and residents can access services immediately by calling 0300 303 9988. Visit
