Information for our Communities: 2021

On 4th January 2021, it was announced that the UK would go into another National Lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

We’ve found some information that may be helpful to you if you need support or advice during this time.

We’ll be adding to this post during the coming days and weeks, so keep checking.

If you have an organisation, Mutual Aid group, or other support in Medway or Swale please contact us and we’ll try to include you in this post.

Medway Council has lots of information, guidance, advice and support which is available on their website.


Swale Borough Council
