Following the most recent government announcements we have had to make the difficult decision to suspend all our face-to-face support and activities until further notice.
As much as possible, HALE are continuing to provide support by phone.
We will keep you updated on this page and via our social media pages (inset page links here please) regarding any further changes or developments to our services
The gov.uk response page has more detailed guidance for people in specific situations https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response
And the NHS advice is regularly updated here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
At a national level, more work is happening to develop accessible information resources – different languages, Easy Read etc. There are some available on the PHE resource centre, but more updated info is in production https://campaignresources.phe.gov.uk/resources/campaigns/101/resources/5080

HALE (Health Action Local Engagement) is an award winning charity based in Bradford, we work with local people, enabling them to make lifestyle changes to improve their health through a variety of programmes and activities, focusing on Isolation, Self Care, Alcohol Awareness, Sexual Health and Nutrition.
Our mission is to
“improve people’s health where there is the greatest need”
We work with people of all ages and backgrounds, and pride ourselves on having a skilled team of community health workers who understand how to make a difference to people’s health and wellbeing.
We aim to:
- Improve aspiration and happiness in local communities by enabling local people to manage their health and wellbeing
- Improve peoples' knowledge of how to engage with their local community and therefore feel less isolated and lonely
- Work with and inform local people to understand how to manage their health needs and howto use health and social care services
- Reduce known health inequalities in the areas we work in
