You do not need to stay at home if you are suffering from #DomesticAbuse

Police and support services are still available – call 999 if you are in immediate danger.

Domestic abuse has often been seen as a ‘hidden crime’, one which is underreported to the police and is a lot more widespread than figures suggest. One of the objectives of the campaign is to highlight that this kind of abuse is never acceptable and that help and support is available to those who are suffering.

However, with the coronavirus outbreak and more people spending more time in their homes, calls around domestic abuse have fallen, raising concerns that there are many people suffering in silence.

No Excuse For Abuse

Domestic Abuse Campaign 

The Home Office is running a domestic abuse campaign, raising awareness of the support and advice currently available. They are grateful for all the support received so far from the NHS stakeholders and would appreciate if you could share the campaign assets with your networks and include a link on your website to the campaign page:

 gov.uk/domestic-abuse

If you need help with Mental Well-being during COVID-19, please contact a service as shown below:


Support For Mental Health During COVID-19

Learning Disabilities - Grab & Go 

The Grab and Go guide has been designed in partnership with people with
learning disabilities, families and nurses.


It gives the information that doctors and nurses will need if you go to hospital
because of COVID-19 and, for example, are struggling to breathe.


It is not a replacement for the everyday, detailed hospital passport. You
should update your hospital passport and take that to hospital along with the
Grab and Go guide if you need to be admitted.


If you haven’t got a hospital passport you can download your local passport by
searching on the internet for (hospital name) hospital passport or choose one
you like from here:
https://www.autism.org.uk/about/health/hospital-passport.aspx


https://www.mencap.org.uk/advice-and-support/health/health-guides


If you need help completing the form please ask:
• someone who knows you well like a family member or support worker
• a social worker
• a support group you are in touch with
• sign up for a webinar with Learning Disability England.

You can sign up at
https://www.learningdisabilityengland.org.uk/what-we-do/events/lde-webinars


or email info@LDEngland.org.uk to suggest a webinar topic or get a
recording of any previous ones.

Childrens Immunisations During COVID information for Parents

The two updated Parent Tips:

  • one providing some basic information on the childhood immunisation programme, explaining how vaccines work, how they are regulated and why it is important to ensure your baby receives all the recommended immunisations
  • the second,  provides answers to “Frequently Asked Questions” and has been written by leading national experts. It covers getting your baby immunised and what to expect, including information on things such as soothing your baby
    during and after vaccinations, and what to do if they are poorly on the day of their appointment.

Just to reassure you that despite the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is still recommended that your child receives their vaccines as this protects them against other serious diseases that can still cause them harm.
