Coronavirus COVID-19 update
Wednesday 12th May 2021
On 22nd February, the Prime Minister delivered the roadmap out of Covid-19 restrictions to transition towards a more normal life.
From the 17th May, England will enter Stage 3 of the roadmap meaning indoor venues such as the inside of community centres, restaurants, hotels, play centres, cinemas and group exercise classes can reopen, meaning we can start to deliver more of our services face to face.
We will continue to follow government guidance, and strive to deliver services face to face where we can. We are constantly making changes to how we work so we can continue to help you.
We are working hard to limit the impact Covid-19 has on our ability to provide essential services for everyone with mental health problems.
We are pleased to announce that our sites are now operating a phased re-opening. For further information please contact your local centre.

We all have an important role in reducing the spread of the virus. We can do this by following NHS guidance, specifically:
- Washing and drying your hands thoroughly, with soap and warm water, for around 20-30 seconds whenever you come into or before you leave any estsblishment (office, shop, home etc)
- Using a tissue if you need to cough or sneeze (not your hands)
- Avoiding touching your face without washing your hands
- Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.
How we’re dealing with coronavirus
- All our project sites are now open, however, staff are working from home where they can, and many services running via digital channels and the telephone, with a small amount of face to face work, following the government’s advice on social distancing.
- All our sites are Covid-19 secure with social distancing and full sanitising measures in place, following advice from a full Covid-19 risk assessment we had carried out.
- Our primary concern continues to be the safety of our colleagues and service users.
- We continue to closely monitor and adhere to Government guidance.
Keeping you updated
As this is a fast-moving situation with guidance being updated frequently, we will keep you informed if there are any changes to our plans via this page.
