Wiltshire Wellbeing Hub
Our Wiltshire Wellbeing Hub is available to anyone who is struggling during this difficult time. The hub can provide support to those who don't have support around them and also signpost to where additional help is available.

Community Groups Directory
We're working with hundreds of community volunteer groups, to support residents during the lockdown. More than 300 groups are continuing to provide support at this challenging time.
We have collated all the community groups in our Community Groups Directory.
A number of coronavirus vaccine sites have opened in the last week in Wiltshire, including sites in #Trowbridge, #Calne, #Wilton, #Tidworth, and #Malmesbury. The NHS will contact you when it's your turn to be vaccinated.

The government has announced the rollout of asymptomatic testing for communities and for businesses. We know how important this is, but we are currently waiting guidance on these tests. Once we have it, we will promote it widely, so please do not contact us about this at present.
Local COVID-19 contact tracing
Local COVID-19 contact tracing is taking place, alongside national contact tracing. If you see a call from 0300 456 0100, please pick up, as this will be a contact tracer looking to pass on information, as well as establish any close contacts of positive cases.
