COVID-19 Advice and Resources

These pages were last updated on 30 March at 10.45

Coronavirus restrictions remain in place across the country. In England:

  • Only socialise indoors with people you live with or who are in your support bubble
  • Up to 6 people or 2 households can meet outside
  • Work from home if you can and only travel when necessary
  • If you have symptoms get a test and stay at home
We are receiving an unprecedented number of telephone calls and emails. Given the huge implications for our members, their family and friends, we have created these pages as a ‘one stop’ point for information about COVID-19. We will update this page, and the links below, regularly so please keep checking back.

Our branch office is closed to visitors. We are observing government guidance regarding the lockdown in England. Most of our staff and officers will be working from home. We are still taking telephone calls and responding to emails but we would prefer you to contact us using our online contact form if you can. Please also check these pages first to see if we have already answered your question(s).
