Covid 19 Update
We are following the most up to date government advice, and like so many organisations, we have made the decision to reduce face to face contact in line with social distancing recommendations. Therefore, we have postponed our group meetings and moved towards working via telephone and email support from Monday 16th March. We are making every reasonable effort to operate our services remotely, by being an anchor through meaningful contact in other ways with existing and new service users, by providing advice, support, information and navigation.
You can keep up-to-date with current government advice, published daily here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public
Please note that:
- We recognise the rapidly changing situation, therefore these arrangements may change, dependent on government advice. However, we will update our website as this happens.
- This situation is unprecedented, and we are acting in the best interests of our clients, staff and the public. Thank you for your understanding and support.
