Handy person, foot care services, men in sheds project and befriending cafes and fitness sessions have all been suspended and closed in light of the virus.

However, the charity has announced they are working closely alongside local authorities and other charity partners to identify the quickest method to provide help through volunteering and redeployment methods.
