Update on Coronavirus and our support services

Wednesday, March 18, 2020

Following on from the government’s announcement regarding the updated Coronavirus mitigation strategy, we have cancelled all face to face support group meetings whilst these social distancing recommendations are in place.

We recognise that during times such as these, people living with long term health conditions may require more support. For this reason, we are investigating ways our local groups can use digital support tools in order to reach their groups and will have more information on this over the coming week.

We will be increasing our opening times on the Helpline and our HealthUnlocked forum is available should you need support. At this time, we are doing all we can to take the necessary steps to ensure we are protecting the health and wellbeing of our supporters, volunteers, and staff.
