Priority for deliveries
If you were registered for priority delivery under previous lockdown restrictions, that remains the same. To update your details or to newly register yourself, or a relative, go the government website here. You can also register here for other help with food, prescriptions or someone to talk to.
Volunteer shopping cards
Volunteer shopping cards enable you to purchase a shopping voucher for a set amount and have that sent directly to the friend, family member or volunteer who is doing your shopping for you, without having to exchange cash.
Each store has slightly different ways to top up or to reclaim any balance left on cards. These are the major stores using a volunteer shopping card:
