Prescot Town Council – Self Isolation Support Scheme

Prescot Town Council have been proactive in delivering a temporary support scheme for those following government guidance to self isolate and are in need of basic provisions as a result of doing so. We have now agreed to support Whiston also with our scheme.

If you have lost your income temporarily (zero hrs or agency jobs) as a result of Government Directive Self Isolating and you live in the township of Prescot or Whiston (so if you pay your precept to either Town Council) you can apply for a ‘Basic Box’ of foodstuffs to support you during the 2 week isolation period, to be delivered by our volunteers to your home. Please ring the Knowsley Support Line on 0800 073 0043 to request help and they will pass your request on to the Town Council.

However a more permanent solution is being developed by Knowsley MBC which Prescot Town Council are expecting to merge with.

In the meantime, anyone needing support can call freephone 0800 073 0043 from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday and 10am to 2pm at weekends.
