COVID - 19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. Its caused by a virus called coronavirus

What to look out for?

 

A dry cough

A temperature

Tiredness/lethargy

shortness of breath (in more severe cases)

 

Public Health England have advised :

 

You should stay at home if you are unwell with a new, continous cough or high temperature. This will help to avoid spreading the infections to others. The recommendation that everyone follows social distancing advice, especially if you or someone in your household has an underlying health condition. Social distancing involves avoiding: contact with someone with symptoms, non essential use of public transport, gatherings with friends, families and large groups. 

 

If you, or someone you live with has symptoms, then all household members must stay at home and not leave for 14 days. If your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online. 

 

Please access the NHS England website for further advice:

Enact updates 

Update 09.7.20

With restrictions easing we now believe it is the right time to start slowly bringing back some youth provisons. (Please go to the youth section for more info) We are working in line with the Nation Youth Agency and they have now lowered the level of risk to amber which means we can do some small group work inside and outside the building. Our aim is to do more outdoor activities in the summer but we must continue to social distance and follow government guidelines. Please keep an eye on ur social media platforms for more information.

Update: 18.3.20

Based on the recent goverment advice about reducing/stopping social gatherings due to the Coronavirus outbreak we have taken the decision to end all provisions here at enact until further notice. We have not taken this decision lightly and the safety of participants and staff is paramount. We will maintain contact through our twitter account and updates online. 

 

We recognise this closure will impact our enagagement within the community, however as community workers we will be contactable throughout the closures please email/text/call where appropriate. Stay safe and look after one another. Manju - enact Team Leader 

 

Update: 02.4.20

We are changing how we stay connected. Please check the link to our online timetable which shows what we are doing for the coming week on Twitter (@enact_info).

 

We also have our new Instagram page (enactcommunity) allowing us to post up messages/pictures/blogs/signposting to other sites, encouraging connectivity. 

We are trying a new way to connect with those and taking suggestions from the community. This is lead by what we hear and see from the enact community so please come and get involved. 

 

We are all staying home and doing our bit for safety, the NHS but also our country and we know this is a difficult time however we are going for our 'one walk a day' outside. We can appreciate that for some there is a reluctancy due to the fear of Covid-19, but as long as you are using the social distancing guidance of 2 metres apart, this is considered acceptable. Check out the team walks next week encouraging to get out once a day. Stay safe all.

 

Update: 20.4.20

 

Last week we were told by the government that the lockdown would continue for another 3 weeks, that means we will continue to share what we can here at enact online. That is, as much as we possibly can do working from home. This has been a huge adjustment to us all but we know that we are doing our bit for the country and safety is paramount to us all.

We have had a chance to reflect and open our eyes to all the wonderful agencies out there trying to make a difference. If you need the support it is there for you.

 

Update: 4.05.2020

There are plenty ways to get involved here at enact. Go to our instagram an twitter to find our regular challenges that the team have beeen attempting, or check out our fortnightly competitions where you could be in for a chance of winning £35 worth of isolation goodies to help you during this lockdown. We are available Monday to Friday during workign hours so you can simply just get in touch with the team. This week we are looking at our value of 'positive to learning'... what do you think that means?

Mental health Links 

 

Is it important to look after your mental wellbeing, recognise when you feel low or happy and work on your feelings. The way we describe this is you would go to a doctor if you hurt yourself, the same way you should look after your mental wellbeing and get information regarding this. This is why we have complied some mental health links taken from reputable organisations such as the NHS. There are 950 different organisations listed. 

 https://www.nhs.uk/Pages/LinkListing.aspx

 

Take a look, its ok to make yourself aware of what is happening and there is always support around if you choose that route. 

You can speak to someone from the team to help point you in the right direction.
