Covid-19 Support from Age UK

These are the support services Age UK Plymouth are offering during COVID19, just to inform us and other GP practices of what is available.

Home food Deliveries – Food Boxes: varied sized and prices delivered straight to the door, order over the phone requiring card payment. Next day if ordered before 1pm.

Shop n Drop services: volunteers do their shopping for them – cash only. Accessed through calling Age UK Plymouth on 01752 256020 or email

These services are particularly for patients who are not deemed high risk & shielding (so cannot receive delivery slots from supermarkets) but are self-isolating or cannot access food.

Age UK Plymouth can also organise prescription pick ups and Phone Friend Calls for people who are lonely.
