In the coming days, we will be updating information and processes to meet this challenge, so please bear with us. More information on these changes will be posted soon.
Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:
Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
DO YOU NEED HELP?
One of our approved partner volunteer organisations will be in touch with you as soon as possible to offer you the help you need.
Don’t give your bank details, bank card or PIN to anyone, and don’t give cash to anyone who is not part of this volunteer scheme or you already know.
Check that the person who comes to help you is from the voluntary organisation who contacted you.
