Coronavirus (Covid 19)

The KSCP is committed to providing everyone with regular updates about what is being done locally and nationally and with that we are producing weekly briefings to share and signpost news.

The KSCP has also created web pages to provide information, advice and tips to help with the unprecedented changes that have been caused by the virus. It is also important to keep checking the Government website on Covid 19 to keep up to date with national guidance and rules.
