British Society in Uruguay

Dear members,

In view of the current coronavirus containment situation and the Government’s call for self-isolation, The British Society has decided to implement a community help system to support those in greatest need during this health crisis.

We are offering anyone who may require assistance to do necessary food, pharmacy or other required shopping – most especially those over 60 or with pre-existing health conditions, who are particularly in danger from exposure to COVID-19 – to contact the Society for help. We will have someone do the shopping for you and deliver it at your doorstep.

Likewise, we invite anyone requiring technical (IT) assistance, be it to set up a messaging or virtual meeting application (such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, etc.) or any other computer or smartphone related problem, to contact the Society for help. We will have someone help you out and carry you through the steps required over the phone or using other remote contact methods.

And if there is any other way in which you require help, that you think the Society could be of assistance to you, we encourage you to contact us.

The British Society helpline is open at all times at or calling 096 021 918.
