Sussex Local Resilience Forum
The county’s public and emergency services are working together to support vital services, protect the most vulnerable and mitigate the impact of the coronavirus on our communities and businesses.
Sussex Police: be on the alert for fraudsters taking advantage of the vulnerable during the current crisis. There has only been one reported case in Sussex, but nationally there have been more than 100 reports, so while there is no need to panic, everyone should be aware of the possibility of attempted scams.
