18th March 2020
Following Government advice about the Coronavirus we have made some difficult decisions about our activities over the coming weeks. Our priority is to join others to tackle the spread of the virus, protect the most vulnerable members of our community and ensure our staff remain well and able to offer support to you all.
As a result, all our planned group events (training, support groups, family events) from now until the end of May have been cancelled. For the time being we have kept in place plans for events from June onwards but decisions about whether they go ahead will be based on the situation nearer the time.
We know this will be disappointing news for many of you but we are committed to providing the best support we can in the current circumstances.
- Our helpline will continue to operate throughout this period on 0121 450 7575 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Advice appointments will still run but face to face contact will be replaced with telephone appointments.
- We are exploring the use of technology so that those who want it can still receive group support via Skype/or similar.
