Adapting to the New Now

Adapting to the New Now

Dear Stakeholders,

I hope that you and your family remain well.

Due to recent update from the Prime Minister, we will be closing internal services from 5th November. In July, we made the decision to reopen our doors (bricks), to reduce isolation and support members’ wellbeing.
We are now adapting to the New Now, always putting people first and transforming lives. With that in mind, from 9th November we will provide the following: door step, home visit and virtual services. This will take effect throughout November and December. My belief is that when life gives you lemons, don’t suck it, make lemonade. We hope to resume services at base on 4th January 2021. Please see below our business continuity plan:
