Once again, due to a rise in Covid-19 cases, National restrictions began in England on 5 November. We know that this has left many of our residents feeling anxious and we wanted to reassure you that we are here to provide you with whatever support you feel you may need. We also want to outline some of the key things you ARE still able to do to keep life as close to normal as possible.
- You can leave home to go to work (if you can’t work from home) or carry out essential activities such as shopping for food or medical supplies
- You can leave home for education or childcare
- You can leave home to visit people in your support bubble, or to provide informal childcare for children aged 13 and under as part of a childcare bubble, to provide care for vulnerable people, to provide emergency assistance, attend a support group (of up to 15 people), or for respite care where that care is being provided to a vulnerable person or a person with a disability, or is a short break in respect of a looked after child.
- You can exercise or meet in a public, outdoors space with people you live with, your support bubble (or as part of a childcare bubble), or with one other person.

How is Caridon Foundation helping?
Helping people move
We remain committed to helping those in need find suitable accommodation. Moving home is still permitted under government guidelines so we can continue to help new and existing tenants move home
As per the current government guidelines, we can continue to carry out emergency maintenance and repairs which would impact your health or safety if left unattended.
Our Housing Support Officers remain available and can be contacted by telephone or email for any queries.
We endeavour to continue providing a person-centered approach by keeping in regular in contact with all of our tenants via phone calls and through our out of hours service and will not rule out fact-to-face meetings where we feel it is necessary.
We are working to identify the most vulnerable tenants and doing all we can to provide extra support. In exceptional cases, designated staff members are delivering much needed food and other necessities to our most vulnerable tenants who are unable to leave their home.
We are also signposting tenants to local support agencies to help them through this difficult time.
Tenants who are worried about the financial impact of COVID-19 and their ability to pay rent, or those struggling with loss of employment and needing to apply for Universal Credit can contact us on 0203 897 24720 or email email@example.com
