Groups who can help with shopping

Who can help me with shopping?

If you would like help or advice with your shopping please contact one of these groups directly.


NHS Responders

You may be eligible to receive support from NHS Responders. This includes help from volunteers with collecting shopping, medication and other essential supplies. You can request help from them by calling +44 808 196 3646.

You will be asked for a few details including your name, contact details, address and doctors’ details* in the UK (in most cases this should be The University of Warwick Health Centre, University of Warwick, Health Centre Road, Coventry, CV4 7AL). You will then be asked what help you need. These details will then be passed onto a volunteer who will be in touch with you as soon as possible (normally within 72 hours).

If you are an international student and have not yet registered with a GP in the UK, you should register as soon as possible. You can register online with the University Medical Centre if you are within their catchment area. For further information about healthcare in the UK please see the relevant links on our useful information page for new international students.


Local Community groups

There are a wide range of other community support groups, local organisations and agencies in CoventryCoventry and Warwickshire who may be able to provide support during your self-isolation. 

One of these groups, Good Neighbours, have a list that they regularly update of different sources of help for food and delivery in Coventry.
