About this event

Now that we have entered another national lockdown, it's important that our communities know how they can access support and for us to make sure that we're all staying connected during this time.

This event is open to all Southwark residents who wish to attend.

Healthwatch Southwark have partnered with Community Southwark to highlight to residents of Southwark what's going on in the borough during the national lockdown and ways that they can stay supported and connected during this time. 

We will be working with partners around the borough to put together an agenda that addresses the needs of our communities.
