Lambeth Council has launched a new set of web pages aimed directly at young people. The Young People’s Guide to Coronavirus is a one-stop-shop for up to date information, advice and great ideas for making the most of lockdown. Everything they need to know, all from trusted sources, presented in seven sections.
Lambeth Council have put together a great new resource for Lambeth people called ‘Here for you’. This leaflet provides comprehensive information on what support is available through the Council in the borough. This includes support on:
- Getting urgent help
- Financial help, benefits, employment and housing advice
- Mental health, domestic violence and emotional support
- Changes to services for children and families
You may have already seen this promoted through Lambeth Together or Lambeth Together partners.
“During this Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve all heard the message to stay at home as much as possible and it’s great that people are doing this. GPs are still here for you though and it is important that you contact your surgery for advice or to make an appointment when you need to.
Doctors in Lambeth are asking patients not to put off contacting their GP surgery if they need to consult a doctor or nurse.
Fewer patients have been consulting their doctor or nurse for their usual health issues or new physical or mental health problems during this pandemic and this is concerning doctors as there may be people out there who need medical advice and whose conditions may worsen if they don’t get it.
