Although our usual activities and clubs have been postponed, we are working hard to develop new services that will support you through this period of isolation.
Our dedicated staff and volunteers are offering:
- A shopping and prescription collection service for those who are unable to leave their homes
- Regular wellbeing phone calls where you can chat to someone and find out what other support may be available to you and be signposted to other services that may be able to help you during this time
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.
