COVID-19 Service Update -
The Sheltered Housing team are continuing to offer services to residents living in our sheltered schemes, but are contacting people via the intercom system wherever possible to minimise face to face contact. All usual health and safety checks are being completed.
The lifeline service continues to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The team is still able to accept new referrals for the installation of lifelines but will not be visiting for any non essential maintenance checks at this time.
