WARNING - Liverpool enters
Tier 3 lockdown restrictions today
THE Liverpool City Region, has
just over 630 Covid19 cases per 100,000 residents, and is now the only area in
the UK to be placed in the very high category, Tier3. It means 1.5 million
people across Liverpool City and the surrounding boroughs of:- Halton, Knowsley,
Sefton, St Helens and Wirral are now under the new restrictions. The worst hit
industries are media and arts, along with the hospitality sectors. In Liverpool,
48% of our business rates come from the hospitality sector. Other areas like
Sefton are also very reliant on these sectors. Liverpool City Mayor, Joe
Anderson told the media that:- "We can't afford businesses to fold because
the loss of income from business rates will push Council finances over a cliff."
A statement expressed by many of the other Councils within the Region. As the
news came that the measures are currently in place for 6 months, with a monthly
review by Central Government, it's still very unclear as to what will be
required to downgrade the Region to Tier 2 or even Tier 1 if the numbers fall
quickly. Leaders from Liverpool City Region's 6 Local Authorities have since
requested that the Government gives them a:- "clear definition of the Exit
Strategy, from Tier 3."
Tourism, music, and arts have been the beating heart of Liverpool and the
Region, for over 100 years, but with BREXIT Looming and the worry that the Tier
3 status will irreparably damage both the freelance economy and the City as a
whole, things are not looking good. The message from business owners is clear...
We must have clear guidance and comprehensive financial support to protect jobs
LGA Respond to latest drug related death figures
RESPONDING to latest statistics
on the number of deaths related to drug poisoning in England and Wales in 2019,
Cllr Ian Hudspeth, Chairman of the Local Government Association's Community
Wellbeing Board, said:- "Councils are committed to ensuring drug users get
the right support and treatment. Opiates, new psychoactive substances and
addiction to medicines are challenges which councils' public health teams want
to focus their recovery efforts on, during and beyond the pandemic. The biggest
challenge we all face is an ageing cohort of drug users, who have not previously
sought or had any treatment. As a result, they are prone to an accumulation of
chronic physical and mental health conditions that make them more susceptible to
dying through overdose. It is essential that we reach out and help those not
already in drug treatment, including urgently making naloxone available to help
save lives from opioid related overdose. It is also vital the upcoming Spending
Review sees significant and sustainable investment in public health, including a
reversal of councils' £700 million grant funding reductions since 2015, to keep
providing the essential services which help people stay healthy and free of
Alcedo launches new Live in
DUE to unprecedented demand and
an ever increasing need for home care, award winning Alcedo Care Group has
launched a brand new Live in care Division. Offering 24/7 support at home,
Alcedo Care's Live in care provides a range of levels, from companionship and
emotional support to help with medication, personal care, dementia and more
complex care services, with bespoke packages created tailored to suit the needs
of every client.
Available for individuals or couples of all ages, clients receive a complete one
to one care service, unrivalled by residential homes, with the ultimate aim of
helping clients maintain their independence, routines and lifestyle for as long
as possible and provide peace of mind for family and loved ones.
Alcedo Care's Live in care service also offers short term respite support,
covering holidays and trips away as well as Hospital discharge convalescence.
Now available across the North West, Alcedo Care forecasts that it will create
over 40 new jobs before the end of the year. The Group anticipates the demand
for Live in care services will be strong for many years to come.
Now more than ever people are carefully considering options other than
traditional residential care, the main drivers being concerns over the safety of
a shared environment, over which they have no control, and a chance to avoid the
emotional pain caused by separation from family, loved ones and beloved pets.
Andy Boardman, Managing Director at Alcedo Care, comments:- "There is a
real desire to keep loved ones safe and well at home, which has without doubt
intensified during the recent pandemic. Many families were not able to provide
the care required due to lockdown restrictions and we saw a big increase in the
number of enquiries for 24/7 care at home. Our new Live in care service
addresses this need, providing both long term and short term support that is
flexible and represents value for money. The bespoke care packages ensure each
and every client receives continuous care that perfectly suits their needs, with
all carers trained to Alcedo Care's exacting standards and employed directly by
us. Using the latest technology, the families of our clients benefit from real
time remote access to our care notes, ensuring they are kept fully up to date at
time convenient to them."
Enriching lives and supporting independence, Alcedo Care's Live in care is now
available across the North West, with national expansion planned for 2021.
Established in 2017, Alcedo Care continues to expand at pace and is fast gaining
an enviable reputation as the home care provider of choice and the highest rated
by its clients in the UK thanks to its superb 450 strong team of highly skilled
and compassionate carers who make a tangible difference to the quality of life
of the company's home care clients.
Run by Andy and Jo Boardman, a passionate husband and wife team, the company
aims to bring something different to the sector based on recruiting only the
very best carers and retaining them by placing value on job satisfaction,
training, continued professional development, internal promotion prospects and
pay structure. This combined with using the very latest technology is what sets
the Alcedo Care Group apart from other home care providers.

care services across the North West including Lancashire, Liverpool and
Lancaster and Wyre.

Has life knocked you down?
Join our Fight Club
THE Producers of the brand new
BBC Two series, Idris Elba's Fight School (w/t), are looking for young adults to
take part in the show.
The new series will see international star Idris Elba set up an experimental
fight School, in London, which will provide an outlet for young men and women
who may have found themselves stuck in a rut, for whatever reason.
This experiment is based on real life fight Schools which have proven to
transform the lives of the young adults who've taken part, such as the Hillbrow
Boxing Club in Johannesburg, South Africa. Founded by reformed criminal George
Khosi, the School has not only provided a space to keep local youth off the
streets and out of trouble, but also a way of bringing discipline and aspiration
to the community's youth. More info on
Idris, and the team of coaches and
mentors, are looking for the recruits from a number of places UK, aged 18 to 30.
They're looking to use boxing to teaching them life skills like self worth,
confidence, focus and determination; all key elements in the world of fight
training. The life lessons learned from Fight School will hopefully give them
the tools, determination and direction to transform their lives and stay with
them long after the immediate challenge.
Living and training together over 6 intense months, they will battle it out
against other amateurs and work towards a big showcase finale. If they can stick
it out, this no holds barred, rough and ready experience will motivate them to
make positive changes, but only if they are open to them.
Whilst Idris and support professionals will be mentoring the young adults, they
will be trained in the ring by the hardest and toughest in the boxing industry,
who also happen to be ex-world class champions. This raw yet thought provoking
series will demonstrate what can happen when people are given a fighting chance
to turn their lives around.
No previous boxing experience is necessary this is not just for people who are
interested in the sport, as the experience will offer much more than that.
Why your area? We're keen for our audience to see people on
our documentary whom they relate to, and so we want to make sure we reach out to
a range of areas. We want as many young people as possible to have the chance to
access this life changing, once in a lifetime, free training.
