Our COVID-19 response

As the world tackles COVID-19, our focus has been to continue with the important work we do, protecting the vulnerable and delivering vital services which many in the community could not do without. We work closely with agencies such as the NHS, social prescribers, housing agencies and the council.
We have continued supporting the wellbeing of service users by transitioning from befriending home visits to running our telephone befriending and penpal schemes. We have made home deliveries of healthy lunches, dinners and Christmas hampers whilst in person events could not take place. These have been a lifeline to many who were isolating and unable to see people week after week. The regular contact with us has made all the difference.
We ensured that all volunteers making deliveries observed social distancing rules, mask wearing, as well as hand washing and sanitising after every visit.
