Support for vulnerable people must be a priority

Commenting on the announcement today (November 4) of a “helping hand” for vulnerable people during the pandemic, the Shadow Minister for Health – Andrew RT Davies MS – said:

“For months, Welsh Conservatives have been calling on the Welsh government to provide support for people in Wales struggling because of the pandemic and lockdowns, and experiencing a deterioration in their mental wellbeing.

“The effect on some of the most vulnerable people in Wales has been absolutely devastating. Almost daily, we read media reports of suicides and others who are suffering terribly during the pandemic.

“We’re not out of the woods yet, and we’re approaching winter. It’s critical that the Welsh Labour-led Government ramps up the work it is carrying out for vulnerable people.”
