Covid update February 2022 Posted on Tuesday, 1 February 2022
There are changes this month as Plan B comes to an end, however, we are not quite back to pre-covid patterns of working.
VASL Car Scheme is continuing to take people to medical appointments and support the Jubilee Foodbank but is not able to offer the full range of transport as we need to recruit more volunteers
Support for Carers The phone line is available 9am-5pm Monday to Friday if you need advice or to complete a carer’s assessment, but support groups are continuing on Zoom through February.
Community Champions volunteers are visiting at home from 1st February where both people are happy with this. There is a face to face gathering on 9th February and the delayed Volunteer Christmas Party on 23rd. Some events will still be online eg book club and mini zooms so that as many people as possible can join in, and some volunteers are still phoning or writing rather than visiting.
Wellbeing Befriending Service is telephone based and is continuing to support people who want to make changes to improve their lives. This is helpful for people who find their lives are still restricted by the impact of isolation over the last two years.
My Mind Matters is continuing to support people over the phone and is making plans for a new group to meet later in the month.
Young Carers Project is currently recruiting a new Project Manager
Staff are splitting their time between working in the office, in the community and at home.
Please get in touch if you have any questions.
