Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

During this unprecedented time, we encourage all to follow Government guidelines and to stay at home. The mPower staff who are clinically trained have been diverted to work in support of the front-line services during this pandemic. The rest of our teams are working from home to keep both themselves and the public they serve healthy. Our support continues, mostly via telephone and digital communication and we encourage all who need support to get in touch with your local mPower contact. Contact details can be found here. As a project we support those who are most vulnerable to the virus, and therefore want to do all we can to help and support in any way we can.

Stay safe, stay home and stay healthy and we’ll try to help you stay connected.
