A NEW free service is offering information and support to vulnerable adults during the coronavirus pandemic.

People First Keighley & Craven has joined with the NHS to launch Keeping Neurodivergent People Connected.

The service is available to any adult with a neurodiversity condition, including autism, Asperger syndrome, ADHD and mild learning disabilities.

There is a particular focus on people not already routinely connected with services.

Spokesman George Riley said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has caused huge disruption to people’s lives and we are here to help people understand their current circumstances, problem solve, provide access to specialist services in their area and offer support and information.

“We aim to connect with vulnerable members of our community by phone, text, video and email.

“Many of the most vulnerable may require this kind of support for the first time, or might be unsure of where to access it during these uncertain times, so we are asking for help to identify members of our community who may benefit from this service.”

Mr Riley can be contacted Monday to Thursday on 07422 939461or george.riley@peoplefirstkc.com.

On Fridays, contact Hanna Bennett on 07435 960794 or hanna.bennett@peoplefirstkc.com.
