Information for shielding residents

Money and jobs

Government advice is that after 1 August, those who were shielding should return to work, if its safe. Many shielding residents will have been working throughout COVID-19, but this will not have been possible for others.

If you can continue to work from home, the Government has asked employers to support this. ACAS (Advice Conciliation and Arbitration Service) has advice on their website on working safely during coronavirus.

We have published advice on money, debt and benefits, including hardship support for residents. If you are struggling financially because of COVID-19, you are not alone. Help and advice is available. 

WorkWest has careers advice, information on adult learning opportunities and guidance on apprenticeships.
