In many local areas, informal groups have been set up with volunteers who can help which you can find by searching *name of town/village covid 19 support on Facebook or on search engines. These groups can also provide information on cafes, shops and restaurants in your local area who are providing delivery services.
Be aware that these are informal groups and although some have background check requirements and processes for managing money etc whilst helping self-isolating households, some will not, so care is needed in making arrangements for assistance.
The government is in the process of setting up a more formal NHS volunteer network. More information will provided as it becomes available.
