UPDATE: Restrictions on emails have been lifted

We now have sufficient confidence our systems and servers have not been affected by the recent cyber attack on our ICT provider, Sopra Steria, that we have lifted the block on external emails.

As you would expect, there are a large number of emails that have been quarantine but work is well under way to release them and should be completed by the end of tomorrow (Friday).

Thank you for your patience and support whilst we have worked to safely resolve the situation.    


If you need us urgently, please call us.

Gloucestershire's community help hub

At times like this we all need to support each other to cope with the changes to our lifestyles we will have to make in order to delay the spread of Covid-19. This hub is a collaboration between all local councils, police and health services. Please only tell us you need help when you need it rather than if you might need it at some point in the future.

Look after your wellbeing

If you need help there might already be a group you can get in touch with, check on Your Circle

Your Circle - information about community groups and revised service offers

If you have no other source of help;

Please note this is not a channel for emergencies or social care advice.  Information, advice and support about adult social care can be found here.

We are aware that there are a number of scams at the moment attempting to use the current situation to gather personal data or steal money, visit Friends Against Scams to find out more about coronavirus scams and how to protect yourself against them

Please do not register that you need help:

  • If you are already receiving assistance
  • If you have enough help for the next 2 weeks
  • to request non-essential items
