Hull City Council launched the “Hull Helpline” to support vulnerable residents impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic. Residents could register their need for support through an online form on the council’s website hull.gov.uk or by calling the dedicated “Hull Helpline” number 01482 300 307.
The helpline was for those that have no other means of support within the community and had essential needs that required extra support.
When a person registered their details, their level of need was assessed and prioritised, with support being mobilised when appropriate to help protect the city’s most vulnerable residents.
We at Absolutely Cultured supported this project and our local communities via our existing volunteers who had received the relevant training and experience necessary to help residents who needed it most.
