Coronavirus COVID 19
We are open and working to help you stay safe
To protect our team and to follow the Stay Alert, Control the Virus and Save Lives guidance we are all based at our homes.
This means that the ways you can get in contact with us have changed.
Please do not write into our office as your query will not be picked up. You can email us via firstname.lastname@example.org and if you call and leave a voicemail, we will respond to you. A response may take a little longer than usual, but we will get back to you. A range of information is available on this website and our social media channels are updated regularly.
If you are contacting us to report a crime, please dial 999 in an emergency or non-emergency 101 or preferably report online via www.essex.police.uk
We have been contacted by some people who would like to make us aware of those who are not following the Stay Alert guidance. If you are making a report please contact Essex Police online at https://www.essex.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/c19/tell-us-about-possible-breach-coronavirus-measures/
More information on current guidelines from the Government regarding the restrictions are available at www.gov.uk/coronavirus
