The Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on people’s lives and we know that many of the people we support are acutely affected. The support we have provided in recent months has been wide-ranging, from making sure our service users have access to food and medication, to making weekly wellbeing checks, to ensuring that people who are detained in secure facilities still receive support at a time when they have seen further restrictions placed upon them.

Access to advocacy during these challenging times is more important than ever and we have published this report to demonstrate the creative ways we have found to ensure that vulnerable people still receive the support they need. It tells the individual stories of some of our service users and also focuses on some of our teams, who are delivering enhanced services to meet local needs.
