Many people are concerned over Coronavirus and what it means for them, their families and communities. To help inform constituents, the links below contain local information, including covid monitoring and data as well as information about local services and support. I know many people are also concerned what this may mean for their livelihoods. Information on Government support is also available below, but if you are personally facing difficulties please do not hesitate to contact me.
I will continue to engage at all levels to support residents and businesses, and will post regular updates on this website. Importantly, if you or someone you know needs help, whether through healthcare, accessing local services, financial support or any other means, please do contact either the NHS, local authority or myself. Contact details for all are available in the links above.
We are all in this together and must fight this together in all our communities and as a nation. We need to support our key workers on the front line, but everyone’s role is key to fight Coronavirus.
With best wishes.
Member of Parliament for Woking
