Response to the extension of the Infection Control Fund
17 September 2020
We welcome today’s announcement by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care of funding to boost the Infection Control Fund for adult social care (More than £500 million for social care to reduce coronavirus transmission over winter)
Staff at our St David’s House residential home have continued to work tirelessly throughout all phases of the pandemic. They are specialists at supporting young adults with visual impairment and complex needs, so it is essential that they are able to continue to work without long periods off-work due to self-isolation.
We hope that this fund will help to support the additional infection control measures that are necessary to keep our staff and young people safe, as well as sustaining COVID-secure connections between the young people and their families and friends.
