Stay connected

There are lots of ways that you can stay connected whilst still adhering to Government guidelines for everyone to stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

We encourage people to stay in regular contact with friends and family during this time, particularly checking in with those who are self-isolating or living alone.

There are a range of apps such as WhatsApp and Skype that can support video calling but picking up the phone to chat works just as well!

If you feel that you do not have support during this time and would like to talk to someone, TWBC are offering free Wellbeing calls.

Our team of friendly staff will be happy to chat which we hope will offer a welcome distraction to your day.

If you would like to register for a call, or know someone that would benefit, please complete our online form.
