Caring Together and the Coronavirus

In response to the new government directives, regarding reducing social contact to avoid the spread of Coronavirus, Caring Together has been forced to make changes to the way that we usually do things.

From yesterday (Tuesday) we made the decision to stop all group and social activities until we are advised that it is safe to resume. We know how important our groups, exercise classes and other social events are to people and we will work to minimise the disruption that this will make to peoples lives. However, I am sure that all of you are aware of the unprecedented nature of what we are all facing.

The cancellations will include the 25th anniversary party due to be held in April.

We have not stopped working at Caring Together. Our team will be contacting all members by phone over the next couple of weeks to see how people are coping, what support they have at this time, including what their needs are and we will do our best to respond to these needs.

We will be working hard to develop new ways in which we can keep our services running. New challenges require new solutions and I am sure that if we support each other through this time we will be able to find approaches which minimise the disruption that this is causing to people’s lives.

Thank you for your continued support, keep safe and we will be in touch.
