Reaching Families: Coronavirus Action Plan
Owing to the Coronavirus pandemic Reaching Families has cancelled its programme of activities for the summer term. This includes all of our support groups, training workshops, Face -2- Face befriending and group counselling. Once the current lockdown has been lifted we will look to restart all of the above work as soon as possible.
However, Reaching Families is not closing during the Coronavirus pandemic, in fact we expect to be busier than ever. The times we so suddenly find ourselves in requires us to reinvent how the organisation works, to use technology and creativity to reach families in need, to find new ways of ensuring parents and families stay connected. With that in mind we have developed a Coronavirus Action Plan that will ensure we can still deliver key service during these difficult times. Please see the accompanying poster for the broad outline of our plan. For more detailed information please visit our Stay Connected page.
