Here is a link to a new  Northern Ireland service to register for access to a priority online supermarket delivery slot from Asda, Iceland, Sainsbury’s or Tesco.

You can register if you:

  • You or someone you provide care for have been advised by your/their Doctor (GP) to avoid all face to face contact for 12 weeks; and
  • Do not have access to alternative help and support for shopping from family or friends, or other local networks

These stores will make every effort to offer you an online delivery slot, but it is dependent on demand and cannot be guaranteed.
