Help is a phone call away 

As we all face extra restrictions to slow the spread of Covid-19, Iain Gray MSP is helping promote the free support available from The British Red Cross.

The charity says that support is just a phone call away for anyone who is lonely, worried or in need as a result of the increased measures being taken to prevent the spread of coronavirus across Scotland.

Iain Gray MSP said:

“The British Red Cross has been doing an outstanding job supporting people facing hardship or in need of some extra help through the pandemic and continues to offer confidential support and advice for those in need.

 “Its Covid-19 support line – 0808 1963651 – is a one-stop-shop for emotional support and practical help. The line is confidential and open to anyone and I urge anyone in need of assistance to use it.”

For those who don’t speak English, translators are available, and people can also email if they prefer.
