Flooding Welfare Assistance

28th February 2020

Flooding Welfare Assistance Line (available 9am – 8pm)

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, in association with partner statutory and voluntary agencies, is aware of the current impacts of flooding being experienced by communities in our District.

Please contact 07711 388 566 should you experience welfare issues such as those listed below, as a result of restricted access due to flooding of roads in your area:

· Shortage of food and water supplies;

· Shortage of prescription medicines;

· Attendance at urgent doctor/hospital appointments;

When you call this number, a note of your contact details along with a short summary of your welfare issue will be recorded and passed to the appropriate agency to assist where possible.

Note: In the event of carers experiencing difficulties accessing clients to make home visits, please make contact with your Social Worker.
