Community Shield – getting food and supplies to our most vulnerable

The Essex Resilience Forum (ERF), made up of all the county public sector organisations, is tasked with ensuring that people with the most serious health conditions across – Essex, Southend and Thurrock - are shielded from social contact for 12 weeks during the peak of the epidemic. These people have been contacted already by the NHS and offered food package deliveries.

A distribution hub has been set up in Witham (central Essex), with two other hubs set up by Southend and Thurrock Councils. From this weekend, food deliveries to hubs will begin to be dispatched to the most vulnerable residents.
