Coronavirus and Disability Information Scotland
We are changing the way we are delivering our service in light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We are closely monitoring COVID-19 updates from the UK/Scottish Government and NHS Scotland, and in light of most recent guidance around prevention we have made a change to how our helpline service operates.
To reduce the risk of exposure to the virus and ensure the continuity of our service, we have decided to deliver our service remotely and our staff will work from home for the foreseeable future.
Working remotely will reduce the number of incoming phone calls we can deal with at one time. To reduce the impact of this our helpline will open for an extra hour each day, starting at 9:30 and closing at 4pm.
If you call us and you get our Voicemail, please leave us a short message with your contact details and we WILL get back to you.
Alternatively, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will monitor the situation closely to ensure we minimise any disruption to our service.
Other help and advice during the Crisis.
We are collating a page with links to useful advice, up to date guidelines and information about any services being coordinated across Scotland to help the most vulnerable during this time.
