National lockdown guidance for support groups – November 2020
We’re sharing some guidance for local organisations who run support groups, who may be unsure about what community activities are currently possible We strongly recommend you do not open for face–to-face support during the national lockdown, to keep people as safe as we can and to reduce infection rates. Face-to-face support should only take place when it would be more harmful to stay at home than to physically go to the support group.
