We have been working closely with councils and each local authority has a dedicated contact point in the shielding programme. Our South East Regional Team currently works closely with Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council, as well as Kent County Council and its lead District Council Tunbridge Wells. Officers from the team continue to speak with senior officers on matters regarding people who are shielding. This support will continue as the core offer to those shielding has been extended until the end of July.
