Covid-19 safety measures
All of our roles, and new starters, are risk-assessed if the role is office-based or involves visiting clients. Our offices have sanitising stations and a reduced capacity to maintain social distancing, and when current Government guidelines allow client visits, our volunteers are provided with appropriate PPE. During lockdowns and peaks in hospital admissions, we have suspended visits to clients' homes.
