Adult Social Care
Walsall Council’s Adult Social Care is closely following guidance from Public Health England to ensure that the people we support are protected and cared for safely in light of the current coronavirus pandemic. We are making available up to date guidance for our providers, social care settings and staff to reduce the spread of the virus and to make sure that we are doing everything we can to safeguard those in our care.
For more information, please view the national guidance for residential care, supported living and home care.
