Social Distancing and Self Isolating

Hello, We have put together a list that may be helpful to you if self-isolating or social distancing yourself from others. Information has been gathered from social media and contactng local links and companies. It is not an exhaustive list and we are unable to recommend or check any of these services.

There are many local businesses that are trying to find ways to adapt to the current situation. It is suggested that you also ask the local shops and services that you already use and trust if they are offering any delivery or collection services.

Also, please be vigilant when using the internet or shopping online, Dorset Police have warned there is an increase cybercrime and fraud relating to Covid19, be careful when opening emails and if possible use a credit card when purchasing goods as most major credit card providers insure online purchases.

If you find you are unable to arrange your shopping or meals using this list or other resources then for:

Kind Regards,
