Spring/Summer 2020 Magazine is now available!
A very warm welcome to the Spring/Summer Edition 2020 of the Community Living Well magazine. We hope you’re staying safe and staying well.
The coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has impacted our lives in many ways. From lockdown and not being able to see our family and friends, anxieties around whether or not we’re safe and following Government guidance to a change in the economy impacting employment. Adjusting to the ‘new normal’ is a lot to navigate.
This magazine is dedicated to providing you with useful advice, support and hyperlinks to help you through the coronavirus pandemic. We hope that you’ll find this resource useful and you’ll feel informed, inspired and uplifted.
Since the pandemic, each of our services have had to look at new ways of working so they can continue to provide our service users with support. Information on our service changes are included in the magazine.
You’ll also find information on how to look after your mental health and manage stress and anxiety. If you’ve been furloughed or need advice on what support you may be entitled to, our Navigators and Employment team have put together some helpful information.
Remember you are not alone and that it is okay to ask for help and support if you need it.
From coping with loneliness during isolation, to living well with a long-term health condition during lockdown, the Spring/Summer Edition is filled with content that aims to help you on your quest to improve your mental health and wellbeing especially during these strange times.
As always, this magazine is about you – your thoughts, ideas, concerns and achievements. If you have any suggestions, features or stories you think we should include, please contact me, Michelle, on [email protected].
Take care and stay safe.
