Seeing the light through the armour – moving forward from shielding


From the 1st August the government advice was that you do not need to shield, and it is your choice to follow advice.

Healthwatch Wirral has released a useful resource that offers some simple messages, key contact numbers and information for people who have been shielding and are clinically vulnerable/feel vulnerable.

The link for the resource can be found here:

This document is intended to be a simple resource from trusted, local community groups in partnership with age UK and Citizens Advice Wirral – not clinically or council led.

It can printed and used as a tool for people to reflect on the questions/information and develop a small person-centred plan. It aims to encourage independence and hopefully, for people to feel more confident in how to keep themselves as well as can be at this time, both physically and mentally. This could be supported or worked through with a link worker, social prescriber, Community Connectors, family support worker etc.
