Coronavirus (COVID – 19) Policy Statement
Changes with HF Mencap including the Temporary Closure of MyLife Support Service
Updated: 24th of March 2020
This policy statement is an update to our Coronavirus (COVID- 19) Policy Statement.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we are following government advice regarding social distancing to help play our part in reducing the spread of the disease and to protect the health and wellbeing of our customers and their families.
As a charity we remain committed to the people of who have a learning disability and their families and will do our best by you, in these unprecedented times, to ensure you are heard and supported.
We are sad to announce that we will need to close MyLife Out and About Support Service and the children’s PLAY Service by the end of the day on Tuesday 24th of March 2020 until further notice. No other project classes or workshops will be held at HF Mencap during this time due to the closure of the building.
We are sorry that we have to take this action but it has been advised by the local council as well as part of government’s guidance and is important for the safety of everyone.
We will continue to work hard to ensure normal services can resume when safe to do so. Our office will be closed staff will be working from home and you can contact them by phone or email, please check our website where we will post regular updates and provide staff contact details.
We are in the very early stages of making these temporary changes but will work hard to create a way of connecting people. For example for Services such as the Youth Development Project will be looking at enabling people to participate in alternative/virtual social interactions, friendships and continue to have a say about the issues that are impacting on their lives.
MyLife Support Services
Children’s Play Services
Due to a change in management we are returning to offering one PLAY Saturday a month.
This will be the 1st Saturday of the month.
We ask that parent’s please book in advance.
We ask that parent’s drop off and pick up their children.
We are open between the hours of 10.00 -3.30.
(we ask that children are not dropped off later then 11.00 so community activities can take place)
