SRSB and RSS Update

UPDATE: The ‘roadmap’ for easing Covid restrictions that was announced by the Government in February has moved to the next stage today (29th March) and we are still hopeful that the coming stages will be able to unfold as planned through the coming months. 

Here is a link to the BBC website with a summary of the steps: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/explainers-52530518

With reference to our services, in brief, and subject to conditions laid out by the Government, we will begin to adapt to each stage if possible:

Staff have begun to return to work in the offices with vaccines and testing in place as necessary. We are operating a split between working at home and working in the office. This has meant that we can resume one to one appointments in the buildings if essential, for example, hearing aid services, benefits advice and equipment issuing.

Our Community Advice Officers continue to support our clients and if anybody requires any advice or help with anything, please contact us on 0114 272 2757 or 01709 722 420.

Our care home (Cairn Home) residents have been able to have one regular visitor with whom they can hold hands since 8th March and this has been welcome.

Over the coming months we will be looking to slowly expand our services, taking account of the relaxation of the restrictions whilst still doing our best to ensure the safety of our clients, volunteers and staff.
