Housing and accommodation services
If you, or someone you know is having difficulty with accommodation (for example is homeless, or needs to move home because of health or safety risks due to Coronavirus), help is available. 

Please email emergencyhousing@gov.je or call the helpline on +44 (0) 1534 445566. 

You can request help on behalf of yourself or somebody else you know. 

To protect Islanders from becoming homeless during the coronavirus outbreak, and to make sure fewer people face financial hardship, the following temporary regulations came into effect on 10 April and will remain in place until 30 September: 

  • tenants in financial hardship due to coronavirus cannot be evicted for failing to pay rent or other bills 
  • landlords may not charge interest or any other fee on the late payment 
  • landlords may not increase rents, including where notice of a rent increase was issued before the regulations came into force. Any rent increase may only come into effect after 30 September 


Medical help not related to coronavirus

It's important not to delay seeking help with non-coronavirus health concerns.

If you need emergency medical treatment, you should still call 999 or go straight to the Emergency Department at the General Hospital.

For all other concerns, you should telephone your usual GP surgery to make an appointment. Appointments are available via telephone, video, face-to-face, and at home, depending on your need. If you are unsure where to seek support phone the Coronavirus Helpline.

Wherever possible, you will have an appointment with your usual GP surgery, but if the need for more coronavirus treatment increases, you may have to have your appointment with a GP from a different surgery.

If you are in one of the ‘vulnerable’ groups and you need help collecting your prescription medicines, your GP will arrange for your medical supplies to be delivered to your home by Jersey Post's Call and Check service.

Ask for help

We can provide further support if you are:

  • in financial hardship
  • need help accessing any of these services
  • looking for help for someone else

Examples include accessing free food, hot meals, delivery of medical supplies and dog walking.
