Cambridgeshire Countywide Hub reflects on success helping thousands as shielding comes to end
Cambridgeshire County Council's countywide hub which has looked after the area's vulnerable during the lockdown is set to move into the next phase of its support.
The hub has been staffed by volunteers and council workers who have been seconded from their normal day to day roles in order to help look after the vulnerable in our county.
At the start of the pandemic we identified 19,040 people who required our help. All were contacted by letter and phone and from this the hub has been in regular contact, mainly weekly, with 7,812 shielded people.
