New National Lockdown 5th November

As you are probably aware we are going in to another National Lockdown on the 5th November. We will resume our Covid-19 updates page whilst the Community Base Reception continues to remain closed. Just to note the majority of charities at Community Base as still operating, but for lots of organisations this may be remotely.

We will share resources that may be useful, this will be weekly on a Wednesday, but we will update more frequently if needs be.

As usual please find links to information here:

  • Government advice here
  • Brighton and Hove Council advice here
  • Healthwatch information here
