Action for Family Carers is actively monitoring the situation as it develops and is following current public health information and advice. Following the latest government advice (23rd March) we have suspended all face to face events and activities for the time being.
If you or the person you look after is feeling unwell with symptoms similar to those associated with coronavirus please look for information on the NHS website and NHS 111 online and follow their advice.
We recognise that this is an especially difficult time for Carers and their families across Essex . At the present time most of our support is being provided over the phone including via our countywide Essex Befriends service: www.essexbefriends.org .uk. We rely on volunteers so please contact us if you are able to help in any way.
