Ever since Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed the nation, outlining new measures aimed at protecting people from the coronavirus outbreak, Bristol (where Newicon is based) has felt like a very different place to live.

The city is no longer awash with the hustle and bustle of international tourists and the graffiti-strewn streets are practically empty, except for a couple of individuals participating in their daily exercise routines.

Most of Bristol’s businesses have shut their doors to help contain the spread of Covid-19 and local schools are closed until further notice. In fact, all of our team are working from home whilst managing their own child care - check out how Newiconees are successfully working from home with these helpful tips.

But as we enter into this second testing weekend of self isolation, we ask ourselves what services are available to support us (Bristol residents) during these unprecedented times?
