Rossendale Connected

Rossendale Connected is here to help communities, families and individuals who find themselves without any support network and who do not have any relatives, friends or neighbours who can help during the Covid outbreak.


Tier 4 restrictions include new government guidance for those that are Clinically Extremely Venerable. This advice strongly suggests that people previously identified as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable should stay indoors and shield themselves from contact wherever possible.  If you do need to shield, you will be contacted by the government giving further advice.  Further information on how to ask for support can be found on the government website at shielding advice
