Harpenden Cares: Town Council Assisted Shopping Service Announcement

Did you know … We run an assisted shopping service for anyone that can afford to pay for food supplies but who is or should be self-isolating?

How it works:

  • You do not have to be over a certain age or have certain health conditions to access this support. If you should be isolating for whatever reason, let us help you with your essential supplies.
  • You contact the Harpenden Cares telephone number (01582 460457) to register for assisted shopping
  • Your request is passed to our assisted shopping team who will call you back to take a shopping list of essential items
  • When you speak to our assisted shopping team you will make a secure payment over the phone using your bank card. Payment will be £50 for a large shop or £30 for a smaller shop
  • Once payment has been taken, the shopping list is passed to one of our volunteers, who will go shopping and purchase as many of the items as possible
  • The volunteer will deliver the shopping to your home without any contact
  • We keep a record of the amount we have remaining on your account, which we will use against future assisted shopping requests that you make

Harpenden Cares Contact Centre, 01582 460457
