Another lockdown update

Hope everyone is still staying safe, healthy and sane. Personally, the thing that will probably drive me mad will be lockdown hair.

I have a few things to share with you that have come in over recent days.

  1. Support for carers
    Claudine Kelly, Age-Friendly Co-ordinator with Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council sent the following:

    Please see information below on support for Carers that you or someone you know may find useful:
    – Carer Hub The Northern Trust Carer Hub is a central contact where you can be signposted to local support or receive other information. The Hub is available Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm on 02827661210 or email
    – Carers Digital For further specific online support relating to the caring role, carers should visit the Northern Trust carer website, create an account to log-in using the FREE access code DGTL2770. This is a designated website for carers where you can download resources, guides and the ‘Jointly’ app for free using the access code. There is also e-learning, nutritional advice and other sources of information.
    – Carer Mailing List Family carers can be kept up to date by signing up to the Northern Trust Carer Mailing List – contact:
