Our experts have put together their top tips to consider to help you keep safe whilst getting out and about and maintaining your independence.
Before you go
Remember that keeping safe is the key to enjoying the freedom of the outdoors. Everyone is entitled to get out of the house , just let a friend or family member know where you’re heading and when you’re likely to head back.
