GETTING BACK TO BUSINESS

Since January 5th 2021 our centre has been closed and staff were working remotely to provide support. Over recent months we have been working behind the scenes to prepare the building and our staff for safe return to work.

We have undertaken a comprehensive risk assessment of our buildings, gardens and projects to take appropriate measures to become Covid-19 Secure. When visiting the building we will ask you to wash your hands before entry, wear a face covering, maintain social distance and don't attend if you or anyone in your household has had symptoms or travelled abroad in the last 14 days.
