Registering as extremely vulnerable to qualify for extra support

Many people with underlying health conditions have already received notifications to advise staying inside for 12 weeks to self-isolate. You can find a list of different conditions that class as ‘extremely vulnerable’ here.

If you were expecting to be included in this, and are not, you can register as extremely vulnerable here. This is key for receiving additional support e.g. getting deliveries of essential supplies (such as food and medication). The advice states that if you are unsure whether your condition makes you extremely vulnerable, to apply anyway.

NB: for the registration to go through, respondents need to click ‘yes’ on the page ‘Do you have a medical condition that makes you extremely vulnerable to coronavirus?’ (if you click ‘no’ it states that you are ineligible).

Finding local support

Whatever your situation might be, if you need help with something practical (for example getting food shopping or medication) you can find local voluntary services on the NCVO website or the Covid-19 Mutual Aid UK website. Search using your postcode to find local services. If you need any help with finding services please contact the Ataxia UK Helpline on 0845 644 0606 (open 10:30-14:30, Mon-Thurs) or email
