Self Isolating Resources

IMPORTANT INFORMATION    Community Support Team A5 flyer

Bolsover District Council has set up a Community Support Team to help provide advice and support to those affected by the Covid 19 Virus. 

The Council is inviting residents who are self-isolating and in need of assistance, to register with the Support Team.  This will help the Council direct resources to the most vulnerable in the District. 

Below is the link for people wanting to register themselves as self-isolating on the Council’s website. People that register are then being contacted directly to ascertain any help that is needed.
