Renfrewshire Council

Free phone line to support people during the pandemic

Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) and RAMH (recovery across mental health) have created a direct access free telephone support line to help people talk about how they are feeling during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Who is the phone line for?

Many people are worried about the effect of Coronavirus as well as the practical, emotional and financial effects and are looking to speak to someone about their feelings. They may not want to trouble their GP or even loved ones with their concerns and this support line aims to make speaking with someone who understands their anxieties that little bit easier.

What is the number?

Call 0800 221 8904 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm)

Who will I speak to?

This freephone number puts you in touch with trained and experienced staff from Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership and RAMH who can support you and help with resources, information and assistance available throughout Renfrewshire.

What other support is available?

Renfrewshire HSCP has been working with other local organisations to focus on what could improve wellbeing across Renfrewshire, recently launching the Renfrewshire Bereavement Network

You can also visit the Council's public Coronavirus advice page with health information and contacts for assistance.
