Our response to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Click here for current information

26 August  2020

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we have had to implement a few changes to our services. Please check in with us to see if anything has changed.

During the COVID-19 pandemic we are taking additional steps to make sure everyone can stay healthy and safe when we visit people in their homes and when people visit our centres. We are closely monitoring and following  government health advice and directives, as well as adhering to our usual high standard of hygiene management and infection control.

We are asking anyone we work with in home inform us in advance if anyone in their household is unwell, or self-isolating because they are at risk of becoming unwell, with COVID-19. We are also asking our clients and visitors who think they may be unwell or who may have been in contact with people who are unwell to stay away from our centres.

 

If you are unsure who to call or you’re looking for general information please call our main number 07 3510 2700, contact us through this website or email

If our phone lines are busy or unattended please leave a message or email us and we will get back to you.

Take care everyone.
