The Isle of Wight Council has moved to reassure thousands of vulnerable Islanders that changes to shielding arrangements will not mean the end of their local support.
The council has pledged to continue its vital work in supporting around 6,000 residents who are currently shielded or isolated and need help getting food and medication.
The helpline will continue to operate until Christmas to ensure those that need continued support are able to access it through a range of local provisions that will remain in place.
