Operation Shield - next steps

Around 2.2 million extremely vulnerable people across England were identified as being at most risk from COVID-19 (Coronavirus) mainly because of an underlying severe health condition. These are people of all ages that have been advised to follow shielding guidance – known as Operation Shield.

A range of support was in place in Coventry to support the individuals included in the shielding programme that enabled people to self-isolate at home by providing a regular supply of essential food and medication (if appropriate).

Following the Government's announcement, Operation Shield came to an end on 31 July 2020.

Find out more about what this means and what support continues to be available in Coventry: Operation Shield Support Service's next steps.

Support for rough sleepers

During the COVID-19 (coronavirus) emergency, all known rough sleepers and people using night shelters in Coventry had been offered accommodation. This includes those with No Recourse to Public Funds.

Coventry City Council’s Community Resilience team has assisted Langar Aid to secure two grants from Crisis (homeless charity) and the Heart of England Community Foundation that will assist them with feeding homeless people and families during the current pandemic

Langar Aid and As Suffa are both continuing their important work providing food to people who are homeless, isolated and vulnerable.
