Residents across Warwickshire will shortly receive a helpful guide from Warwickshire County Council and partners, including Stratford-on-Avon District Council, packed with information about services and support available to them to stay as safe, healthy and connected as possible throughout the pandemic.
The booklet highlights how residents can continue to access key services from the council and other public and voluntary sector organisations and contains advice to help people look after themselves and their loved ones. This important information is relevant to everyone and the booklet will be delivered to every household throughout the county so people who do not use services online can get this important information at this time.
Also contained in the guide is important information from Shade Agboola, Warwickshire's Director of Public Health to raise aware of simple behaviours people can adopt to protect themselves from the virus and control its spread which is just as important now as the country enters a second phase of lockdown as it was before these measures were imposed.
The guide recognises the challenges that these periods of isolation and reduced social contact pose and signposts people to a range of support to stay physically and mentally well and seek help if in danger or without anywhere to turn.
Along with receiving a printed version of the booklet, people can also access a digital copy on the county council website at www.warwickshire.gov.uk/warwickshiretogether
A hotline is also available for anyone who is clinically extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 on 0800 4081447 (opening hours Mon-Thurs 9am to 5pm, Friday 9am to 4.30pm, Saturday 9am to 3pm and Sunday 10am to 1pm).
