Covid-19 – update on current day services, 12th April 2021

Reach’s day centres remain open in line with the government’s latest guidance relating to health and social care provision. Extra measures are in place to keep our clients, staff and volunteers well. All activities comply with latest government Covid-19 regulations and are monitored closely. Our senior management team will keep the situation under constant review and our Centre Teams will be in touch with clients and/or carers in case of any change.

In addition to activities at our centres, our innovative and popular alternative service includes online socials and courses, telephone welfare calls, and delivery of activity and wellbeing packs. We are also supporting family carers through online, telephone and face-to-face communication.
