The current situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is worrying for everyone, but for those who cannot isolate, either because they have nowhere to go or because they are part of the caring profession and are working, we are doing all we can to make sure that they are as safe as possible. 

Sadly there are some individuals who seem intent on making a bad situation worse. Please be careful to avoid scams including people, who might appear to be above board, asking for your full bank details or other personal information.

What we are doing

  • We are working on a daily basis with national and local agencies such as local NHS Trusts, the Local Authority and Public Health England, to make sure that we have the best advice to support you in the right way
  • We are minimizing face to face contact but continuing to maintain our support services. We are using telephone contact, emails or text messaging much more.
  • We are remaining available if you are frightened or need help. Support workers are on hand to answer any questions that you might have.

What people can do to stay safe:

  • Keep in touch with the news and good sources of information such as NHS 111    
  • Wash your hands often using soap and water and follow other government advice.
  • Stay away from other people - keep your distance even from friends
  • If you think you may have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone else who does, and cannot self-isolate, contact us for advice. If your symptoms become worse then contact 111
