Emergency NOISE April 2020: Corona Virus

Update for Northumberland County Blind Association Clients

Dear Friend.

Due to the continuing Corona Virus situation, our office is now closed until further notice. However, we want to do our best to keep in contact with our vulnerable service users. We are therefore pleased to be able to offer a new ring around service, which will be managed and delivered entirely by our volunteers.

  • If you need emergency support, please telephone the Local Authority on 01670 536400

  • If you already have a contact volunteer assigned to you, and your matter is not an emergency, please contact them.

Please look after yourself and make sure you follow the Government Advice. We will be back as soon as we are able to. From the Team at Northumberland County Blind Association
