Coronavirus: Adult Social Care

We are following the government's advice in response to the coronavirus outbreak and making some temporary but significant changes to the way we provide adult social care in West Berkshire. This is to make sure that we can support the most vulnerable people in our communities during the pandemic and protect our communities from public health risks.
