    Are you on the vulnerable list?  If not, you won't find any supermarket delivery available now.

    I don't think you can order online groceries without a bank account though.  How do you usually pay bills etc?  Does a friend or relative have a bank account at all?

    Hello @Syliva   Pleased to meet you.

    Thank you for joining and sharing.

    Please may I suggest you will need to contact any Bank or Building Society on line.

    Please if you do ask them then to set one up for you.

    I do know may be some security questions.  They may ask you.

    I do know also all supermarkets offer various ways to pay.

    Paypal and debit cards.

    Always need a bank account..

    These links may help if you wish to use them.

    https://www.salvationarmy.org.uk

    https://www.redcross.org.uk

    https://www.turn2us.org.uk

    These are useful in a crisis.

    We have lots of information and advice on our website.

    Please if I can add certain vulnerable groups are limited sorry to say this.

    I live on  my own have disability mental health middle Fifties was excluded denied help.

    Please if I can help with anything please get in touch.

    Please take care and safe.

    First of all you have to be one of those that are considered by the NHS as high risk of death, The list produced by the NHS is:

    Who's at high risk from coronavirus

    Coronavirus can make anyone seriously ill, but there are some people who are at a higher risk.

    For example, you may be at high risk from coronavirus if you:

    • have had an organ transplant
    • are having certain types of cancer treatment
    • have blood or bone marrow cancer, such as leukaemia
    • have a severe lung condition, such as cystic fibrosis or severe asthma
    • have a condition that makes you much more likely to get infections
    • are taking medicine that weakens your immune system
    • are pregnant and have a serious heart condition
    You would also have to produce the letter that came this week from the NHS confirming it so. Then you would be given a slot.

    To pay for it you should have either a debit or credit card. You can't very well go down to the shop and pay for it in cash.
     Or, have someone else who has the above to pay for it online and you pay them the cash.

    Just another couple of ideas for you.

    Adult social care may provide assistance. 

    Disability organisations in your area may be able to help.
