I want to thank you for your feedback on these emails. I am going to continue to send out the latest information for you to read and share, as I think it is an important way of ensuring as many people as possible are able to access the help they need. Where I receive lots of emails on one topic, I will include that too.
As always, if you have specific questions, please do email me to ask me – my team and I are doing our best to get back to everyone as quickly as we can.
