Coming out of Lockdown Videos

Coming out of Lockdown Videos

On Monday 19 July we reach the final phase of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown. Subject to a few final checks the Covid legal restrictions will be coming to an end in England. So what does that mean in practice? We’ve produced two videos on YouTube to help you to understand the changes.

Our first video is about Opening Up

Our second video provides information for Clinically Extremely Vulnerable People Who Have Been Shielding

You can read guidance about Coronavirus:how to stay safe and help prevent the spread from 19 July on GOV.UK here.

The government guidance on Shielding and Protecting People who are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable from COVID-19 is here.

In an article which voices the concern of many, Disability Rights UK asserts that disabled people, and people with compromised immune systems, those formerly known as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) people, will be faced with the choice of shielding under their own determination with no support, or facing increased risk of infection by going out in wider society.

“The CEV list had around four million people on it.The Government has once again dismissed the lives and voices of millions of disabled people with plans for the reckless removing of safety measures.

“These planned moves feel very much as though they have been made with no thought for those who stand to lose the most if they contract a virus which is still very much present in our midst.”

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
