We are keen to ensure that the most vulnerable have the support they need. We are ensuring that support groups can go ahead including for vulnerable people, new parents, survivors of crime, and those with or recovering from addictions.

People may visit a public open space for the purposes of open-air recreation to promote physical or mental health or emotional wellbeing. This can be done alone, with a person’s bubble or household, or with one other person from another household.
