To make it easier to find information relating to COVID-19 as we receive it, we have created a dedicated section in our weekly newsletter, and this new section on our website. You can find information on 'Changes to Events, Courses and Activities', 'Information and Changes to Services' and 'Learning Resources and Activities'. You can also find information from our previous Weekly Coronavirus Updates for Professionals and Parent Carers.

We are receiving a significant amount of information and updates from a variety of sources, both locally and nationally, and we are doing our best to share this by updating our website as frequently as we can. We will also post information on our Facebook page as often as we can.
