Ofcom’s Stay Connected advice
As more of us work and learn from home, it’s vital that we all do our bit to help ease pressure on our broadband and mobile networks. Ofcom has seven simple tips you can try as part of their Stay Connected campaign.
Car Insurance and Volunteering
The Association of British Insurers has confirmed to its members that those using their cars to support local communities through voluntary action by transporting medicines or groceries will not have their cover affected. You do not need to contact your insurer to update your documents or extend your cover. This applies to all categories of NHS Volunteer Responders, including transporting patients, equipment, or other essential supplies.Full information regarding insurer commitments on motor and home insurance during the coronavirus outbreak can be found at the Association of British Insurers website.

Help to Claim
The Department for Work and Pensions has confirmed that Citizens Advice will continue to deliver its Help to Claim service until April 2021, which is designed to help people get their first Universal Credit payment. It is recognised that with the coronavirus outbreak developing it is more important than ever that people have access to independent support to make their claim.
For further details on the ongoing situation, the NHS coronavirus information page and the GOV UK Government response page provide the latest information and advice on how to stay safe:
