Message From Andrew Judd The South East Kent NhW Liaison Officer

It seems as if there are new scams being attempted everyday but that is becoming a reality with many taking the current health crisis as a means to prey on the vulnerable. Most are relatively easy to spot but please be aware of those in your communities who may be vulnerable to such attempts.
Stay safe and remain vigilant
