Groceries and Essentials - Updated

Published on 20 July 2020 08:29 AM

Are you self isolating and need home delivery of essential items? 

We have compiled a list of organisations, including shops/pubs/restaurants, who are currently offering home delivery of groceries, food and other essentials to local residents across Horsham District.

Scroll down the page to find an outlet near you.

Please note that this list is subject to change as measures to deal with the Covid19 pandemic change.

However, if you are an older person and you are struggling or you are worried about an older person, please contact us at Age UK Horsham District as we may be able to help you:

Waitrose has launched a 'Volunteer’s Shopping Card' for customers unable to get to the shops themselves. They can now buy a dedicated e-gift card online at that can be emailed directly to friends, neighbours and volunteers to use on their behalf in Waitrose & Partners shops.

Waitrose is currently allowing vulnerable shoppers to have priority access to stores for the first hour of trade.


Asda has launched a dedicated volunteer shopping card to help the many people self-isolating and unable to go out to buy their shopping. Customers can buy these shopping cards online, top up and give to their family member, friend, or NHS volunteer to pay for their shopping without the hassle of using cash or bank cards. This also promotes a contactless way of shopping, essential for reducing risk to self-isolating customers. These volunteer shopping cards can be bought at  

Vulnerable Asda customers will receive a link to take them to the Asda site, where they will be able to access a recurring delivery slot. They will also be able to access slots a week further in advance of everyone else if they don’t want a recurring slot. These customers will also benefit from free delivery and no minimum spend when they place their order.


If you are a vulnerable person, you will be able to book a priority slot and select an eight hour window for delivery from Monday 6th April. Customers who do not currently have a Tesco account and have a letter from the NHS can either create an account online or call the supermarket on 0800 917 7359.

All stores (except Express stores) will be prioritising the elderly and most vulnerable for one hour between 9am and 10am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Tesco customers who aren’t on the UK Government’s list can ask to access the priority online slots by calling 0800 917 7359.


Once you are told you qualify for priority delivery, you can call the Sainsbury's customer care line on 0800 636262, although the supermarket has warned it is very busy and you might need to try a couple of times. When you get through to a member of staff, they will help you arrange a delivery slot.

Elderly customers, carers and disabled customers have a dedicated shopping hour from 8am to 9am Monday, Wednesday and Friday.


Morrisons is working to make more delivery slots available, and is adding a fast track to its queue system so that vulnerable customers can be prioritised. Customers who are classed vulnerable by the government will already have received communications from the supermarket.


Food boxes are now available for delivery:
