Protecting Vulnerable People During the COVID-19 Outbreak
Posted by Natalie Pearson 01/04/20
The Local Government Association (LGU) have compiled an overall point of cross-reference of the progress that councils have made in developing systems to support and protect people who are vulnerable as a result of the COVID-19 emergency. It will also assist the NHS, community and voluntary sector and other partner agencies to understand the role and contribution of local government in supporting vulnerable people.
The brief covers Government guidance for protecting those who are extremely clinically vulnerable to COVID-19, as well as wider work being carried out/planned by councils, the voluntary sector and other partners to help support other vulnerable groups.
