When I planned for the new operational year I thought I had considered all the reasonable challenges and risks we were likely to encounter. Like the rest of the world I had no idea just what was coming.
We are a small business working primarily on employers’ premises, in prisons, jobcentres and one to one with our beneficiaries. Clearly this has come to an abrupt stop. We are working remotely and happy to hear from you as we plan for when the world returns to something we recognise as “normal”.
One thing we have been able to do is to direct people to two of our amazing, supportive employers who are recruiting temp staff in order that we can still keep our homes running.
Needless to say we are incredibly grateful to the NHS staff and all other people involved in the jobs that must be done.
During this time we will be busy bid writing, completing our end of year review and finally, updating this website.
Do all take good care and look out for other people who may need help at this time.
