We’re here to help

Information and advice for our community

While we’re in another national lockdown, we wanted to make sure you were aware of where to get the most up-to-date advice and support.

This virus sadly isn’t just going to go away quickly despite the hope a vaccine has brought us.

But as difficult as it is, we will get through this by working together as a community.

Throughout this new lockdown we will continue to do what we can to help.

You can also sign up for our email updates.

Scam alert

The NHS are arranging vaccinations in order of priority. The vaccine is free and only available on the NHS. The NHS will contact you when it’s your turn. They’ll never ask for bank details, to press a button on your keypad and are not making house calls.

Are you registered for a postal vote?

At the time of writing the Government has said that elections will go ahead on May 6th 2021. This year’s elections could be very different and we’re asking residents to be prepared by registering for a postal vote to make sure their voice is heard.

You can download a form from the Elmbridge Borough Council website and return it by post or email.

Time to support unpaid carers

Lib Dems are calling for £1000 boost for the 1,214 people who care for loved ones in Elmbridge.

Unpaid carers in Elmbridge are doing a remarkable job in very difficult circumstances.

The Lib Dems are determined to stand up for carers and fight to get them the support they deserve.
