Our services remain open, but we are changing the way we do things to allow us to respond the current coronavirus outbreak:
- In line with national ‘social distancing’ guidance we are trying to minimise all face-to-face contact with service users, to keep you and our staff safe.
- That means at times you may have a telephone call or online support rather than attending in person. This will be agreed with you directly.
