Online priority food deliveries now available

You can now register for priority online shopping deliveries if you have received a ‘shielding letter’ from your GP.

A shielding letter advises those with a medical condition which makes you extremely vulnerable to Coronavirus (COVID-19), to avoid all face-to-face contact for 12 weeks.

This included going to supermarket in person, so instead you can register for support with securing an online shopping delivery from one of the large supermarkets – Asda, Iceland, Sainsbury’s or Tesco.

Demand for online shopping has increased during the COVID-19 crisis, leaving delivery slots at a premium.

You can register if you:

  • Live in Northern Ireland
  • You or someone you provide care for have been advised by your/their Doctor (GP) to avoid all face to face contact for 12 weeks; and
  • Do not have access to alternative help and support for shopping from family or friends, or other local networks

These stores will make every effort to offer you an online delivery slot, but it is dependent on demand and cannot be guaranteed.

You can register here.
