Me thinks big issue is that you can only apply for support on-line

So many that are 'falling between the cracks'

Maybe Nunhead Knocks could organise a one off leaflet drop to all residents.Such a pity that so many are not taking advantage of this offer.
We also need to be aware that 85% of people over 60 do not use the internet or have fancy phones.

'But despite a huge public awareness campaign, less than half these people counted by the council are formally registered with the government’s own shielded list and, of this group, only 46 per cent (or 2,060 residents) are receiving government-sponsored food deliveries.'

If anyone reading this post is aware of a neighbour that could benefit please urge them to contact Southwark Council

Note: It seems you can only apply 'on-line' for emergency support - so if the neighbour is not 'connected' please offer to help if you have a 'device'
