24 hour helpline launched- KENT TOGETHER
A 24 hour helpline has been set up to support vulnerable people in Kent who need urgent help, supplies or medication.
The helpline – called Kent Together - provides a single, convenient point of contact for anyone in the county who is in urgent need of help during the Coronavirus outbreak.
If you are vulnerable and have an urgent need that cannot be met through existing support networks, you can contact the Kent Together helpline at www.kent.gov.uk/KentTogether or by calling on 03000 41 92 92. It is a 24 hour service.
Kent County Council also has a page on its website answering frequently-asked questions and the very latest Coronavirus information on its service updates page.

Beyou is continuing to offer support to 8-25 year olds from the LGBT+ community. Support via the phone is also available for parents/carers and agencies. Staff in the team are continuing to make contact with young people who are known to the service and we are trailing online meet ups.
We understand that young LGBT+ can experience feelings of isolation at the best of times but we are doing our best to ensure that we can offer online meetings so that young people can feel connected, supported and part of a community.
