Supermarket delivery slots for vulnerable customers
Supermarkets have been contacting vulnerable individuals.
Asda has begun contacting vulnerable customers in England via email to offer them first access to delivery slots.
Morrisons has begun contacting vulnerable customers in England via email to offer them first access to delivery slots.
If you have been told you qualify for priority delivery, you can call the customer care line on 0800 636262.
Once you are through to a member of staff, they will help you arrange a delivery slot.
If you are vulnerable and have received a government letter, but don’t already have a Sainsbury’s account, you can also call the helpline.
If you do not currently have a Tesco account and have a letter from the NHS can either create an account online or call the supermarket on 0800 917 7359. Tesco should then be able to verify whether they are on the government’s list.
Ask a friend cash scheme
If the person you care for has an account with a bank which has signed up for the Post Office’s “Payout Now” or “Fast PACE” service this may help you.
The improved services mean that self-isolating or vulnerable citizens affected by the coronavirus pandemic can now contact their bank and arrange to withdraw cash quickly from their normal accounts through any local Post Office branch, with the help of a friend, family member, carer or local support worker.
Contact your bank to ask if they are part of the “Payout Now” or “Fast PACE” service. They can then supply details on how to make a withdrawal this way.

Morrisons Customer Services team have set up a dedicated elderly and vulnerable phone line for those customers to place an order over the phone.
