Stay Well, Stay Safe!
Whilst the majority of Government restrictions have been lifted, mindful of the predicted increase in COVID infections Changes remains focused on the safety of those who deliver and access our services.
We will continue to offer you different engagement options – i.e. face-to-face, Zoom or via telephone.
There will be an easing of COVID restrictions at our face-to-face venues – once seated, you will have the option of removing your face mask (if you can socially distance) and sessions will be longer and include a middle break.
However, you will still have to book a place at our Peer Groups/Workshops and social activities; as the number of people attending group/training sessions will be capped, (to allow for a degree of social distancing); sanitizer will be provided, temperature checks will be undertaken and (unless exempt) you will be required to wear a mask whilst moving around the building.
We will continue to monitor the situation – flexing our provision and adapting our COVID-19 protocol – to keep everyone safe and well.
