In light of the current situation, we have descided to collate all of the brilliant resources available that we think could be a great help to getting us all through this.
All of our services continue to run as normal, where safe to do so and in actual fact, across the country, we have seen a rise in the number of referrals and requests for support, including direct calls from various Social Work departments and Local Authorities.
Due to recent events, physical contact may not always be possible, in these circumstances we have a host of virtual options including video calling, we can make telephone calls and have regular communications.
If you are in need of support, or know someone who is, then please contact us. We are able to deliver a lot of the similar responsibilities that social work can, we are already increasing our shared resources across localities and we can be flexible with our approach. We are also able to support home working and most importantly we can bring wellbeing services to your home through our online platforms without the need for contact.
Anyone struggling from recent redundancies or a down turn in work, then please visit our recruitment page.
