As COVID-19 impacts all of our lives, everyone across the country is now getting used to a new normal. It’s changing the way we interact with others, our ability to work, maintain our health, and how we access food, care, and medical support. At Independent Age we hear from people in later life on a daily basis and we know that many were already facing significant challenges before the virus took hold of our country.
This week, Dr Rebecca Steinfeld joins National Voices as our new Head of Policy. Here she introduces herself by answering a few questions about family life during coronavirus and what she hopes to achieve together with the National Voices team, Board and members.
This week we have written to National Voices members, below is the content of our letter.
The arrival of coronavirus in our communities creates unprecedented challenges. We want to thank our members for all the vital work that they are doing to support vulnerable people through uncertain times, and to share more widely what we are doing.
