The National Education Union have launched a microsite to support parents, carers and students.
The site contains information on key areas of concern for parents and families, including the impact of the cancellation of exams and Government test, learning outside school and supporting children’s health and wellbeing.
Lambeth council’s helpline for vulnerable people operates from 8am to 8pm, enabling people who need help (or those caring or concerned for them) to contact the council as part of the Community Hub.
The helpline number is 020 7926 2999.
For up to date information on what the council is doing concerning coronavirus covid-19 emergency response, please go to: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/coronavirus-covid-19.
Service updates are also now hosted on a new, separate page: https://www.lambeth.gov.uk/coronavirus-covid-19/how-were-responding-and-changes-to-council-service.
