It is crucial that all staff and volunteers working in the sector follow the current government advice to stay at home wherever possible and strictly limit face-to-face contact. Only services which are essential should be provided in communities.
We have put together the following FAQ page to help people who want to help out during the current Covid-19 pandemic.
