The Prime Minister has announced that all of England will be placed into a new National Lockdown from Wednesday 6th January to control rising COVID-19 infections, protect the NHS and save lives. For information about what you can and cannot do under the new restrictions please go to www.gov.uk/coronavirus
Since reopening our Opportunities Without Limits buildings following the ending of the first lockdown there has been no evidence of staff or customers contracting or passing on COVID-19 within the services. This gives us confidence that the control measures we have in place are effective in protecting people. However to support the national effort to control the spread of the virus and minimise risk the posed by the current high rates of COVID-19 we will be pausing all face-to-face building and outdoor group activities consistent with the National Lockdown. Our aim is to resume normal delivery once the risk has reduced and restrictions are amended in line with central and local government guidance.
We know the next few weeks will be difficult and a member of the team will be in touch with you to make sure we are doing all that we can to help you. We will be offering alternative forms of support including group and 1:1 Zoom sessions, welfare and social calls, doorstep visits and activity packs. We are really keen to hear from you about how best you would like to be supported.
We understand a further change to how the service is delivered will be inconvenient however our primary concern remains the health and safety of our customers and staff. We will be monitoring the situation in the coming weeks and will keep you updated as the situation evolves.
If you have any questions please do get in touch.
