As lockdown restrictions have started to ease, we are restarting some of our usual activities and clubs and continue to develop new services that will support you  

Our dedicated staff and volunteers can offer:

  • Shopping and prescription collection support for those who are unable to leave their homes
  • Wellbeing phone calls where you can chat to someone to find out what other support may be available or be signposted to other services that may be able to help you

It is important to keep our spirits up during this time, to feel connected to people, cope with anxieties and worries and share our concerns. 

Our website has lots of information and is regularly updated. 

We all need to be aware of the latest information and guidelines from the Government so that we can stay safe and limit the spread of the virus. This information can be found by clicking this link
