Talking to staff, children and young people and their families about how best we might support them, and the local community.
Reducing our operating times and activities, in order to minimise risk to staff and the community.
Following current government and Public Health England recommendations and adapting to new legislation as it becomes available; in order to mitigate the effects of ‘lockdown’ on vulnerable children and young people.
what this looks like:
‘Virtual groups’ using social media where meeting in person is not appropriate.
Detached and outreach work in the local community.
Youth support group sessions and 121 work, indoors and out, where appropriate.
Working with ‘fareshare’ and other local food distribution services, in order to bring food to those who need it most within the local neighbourhood.
Working with other agencies, especially local voluntary sector agencies in order to provide greater support.
Responding to phonecalls, emails and facebook messenger.
If there is someone in the community who thinks we can help, do get in touch. If we can help you we will, if we can’t we will put you in touch with someone who can.
