Supporting clients and carers through COVID-19

Community support

Visit our information for residents section to find out about community support and help for people who are vulnerable to coronavirus.

People with learning disabilities and autism

Supporting adults with learning disabilities and autistic adults is government guidance for care workers and personal assistants.

SCIE have published a guide for care staff supporting adults with learning disabilities or autistic adults.

Easy read COVID-19 guides are available which include how to keep well and look after your mental health. 

Supporting people with face coverings

Skills for Care and our Adult Social Care Training Team have developed a guide for staff on supporting people with face coverings and some other COVID-19 challenges. These changes in behaviour can be hard to achieve, and many people will need additional support to be able to do this without increasing their anxiety.
