Together We're Better Stakeholder Update 30th March 2020

As you will all be aware, we are now facing unprecedented times in the NHS, social care and as a country with the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. We want to make sure that everyone is kept as up to date as possible with what is going on locally in health and care, including any temporary service changes. As a result, Together We’re Better will be releasing weekly updates, like this one, with the latest information from across the health and care system across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

Here to Help - Salus

The online Wellbeing Hub www.salus.org.uk has over 100 videos and Factsheets which we know will be incredibly beneficial to people who need to support their own health from the comfort of their own homes or places of work. If elderly and young alike are having to work from home or self-isolate our Hub can help build resilience in mental and physical health.

Stop Loan Sharks

The England Illegal Money Lending Team (IMLT) recognise that this period may be one of increased financial pressure for some people. The Team is fully committed to ensuring that illegal money lenders (loan sharks) do not take advantage and profit from other people’s hardship.  

The Stop Loan Sharks helpline service (0300 555 2222) remains open and fully operational during the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage not only victims but friends, family members and the wider community to come forward if they suspect someone is suffering at the hands of loan sharks.
