NEW GUIDANCE ON HOW TO HELP PEOPLE SAFELY
Public Health England (PHE) published new guidance on how to help people safely. This is aimed at people who are providing essential support to friends, family, neighbours who are in isolation.

NEW COVID-19 WHATSAPP INFORMATION SERVICE
The Government has now launched a Coronavirus Information Service on WhatsApp. The free service is an automated ‘chatbot’ that will allow people to get answers to the most common questions about COVID-19 directly from government. It aims to further reduce the burden on NHS services, including 111, combat the spread of the virus and ensure people stay at home and save lives. It’s as easy as sending a message ‘hi’ to the dedicated number on WhatsApp.

RETIRED OR FORMER SOCIAL WORKERS NEEDED TO SUPPORT CORNWALL’S MOST VULNERABLE
Cornwall Council has asked anyone living in Cornwall who has experience of working in social care - including retired social workers or those who have recently left the profession - to help them maintain the support provided to vulnerable families, children and adults through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Please register your interest via email to hrdeployment@cornwall.gov.uk who will contact you to gain further details of your qualifications and skill set.
