Face Coverings
You are no longer legally required to wear a face covering at our sites. However, we continue to strongly recommend their use. Face Coverings are recommended at our sites. Our colleagues are still required to wear them at our sites., when meeting with you.

Service Delivery
Our services are operating normally with some additional measures in place to keep you safe. Our staff must wear a face covering at all times and will have taken a Rapid Test on the morning of their visit. We advise that you take a test before we arrive and ask that you open windows and doors while we visit you to ensure adequate ventilation. We also encourage you to take a Rapid COVID-19 Test before attending a session or appointment, our colleagues will have done the same.

Testing
Our colleagues are taking part in twice weekly rapid testing to help track the spread of the virus. Colleagues take tests on Sunday and Wednesday and whenever they're delivering our services.
