The voice of disabled people in Dumfries and Galloway

 

*** Letter from our Executive Officer - 26th March 2020 ***

 

Dear friends,


We are all experiencing change on an unprecedented scale and new information is coming rapidly from the Government. DG Voice will do our upmost to provide you with up to date information that may be relevant to disabled people, carers / families and all our members. This may also be of interest to other partner agencies and friends within the sector and communities.

 

In addition, some useful local sources of information are as follows:

Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway

Dumfries and Galloway Chamber of Commerce

Dumfries and Galloway Carers Centre

 

‘Dumfries and Galloway Carers Centre’ have some very useful information as well as links to helpful sites for Carers :

If you are concerned about what Coronavirus might mean for you, or someone you care for, we recommend you visit the Carers UK website.

Our friends at ‘Carers UK’ have put together some really useful information on The Coronavirus that is relevant for carers and the people they care for.


We all look forward to things resuming to normal in due course.


With kind regards,


Frank Morgan – Executive Officer
