Supportline 179 is the national helpline offering information about local social welfare services and other agencies, and a referral service to callers who require support. It is also a national service to people who are in times of difficulty or crisis.
The Malta Council for the Voluntary Sector is asking all VOs operating essential services, namely those whose services are of a health, disability, social and humanitarian nature (but not only) to identify (a) which services can be stopped and (b) which services need to continue; and (c) what support may be required for essential services to continue? If a VO needs either their support directly or that they intervene with the authorities on a particular issue, get in touch with them.
If you’re feeling alone, isolated, or just in need of sharing your emotions with someone else, call 1772. Operated by the Foundation for Social Welfare Services, this helpline allows people to speak to social professional workers who will be listening, empathising and giving advice.
