How COVID-19 is affecting our work

The current COVID-19 pandemic is presenting numerous challenges for us in terms of service delivery. Find out how we are managing this here.

[Updated 24th March 2020]

On 17th March the decision was taken by our Senior Management Team to close both our Helmsdale and Golspie Village Hubs – this decision was taken in order to protect our valued Hub members at a time when they were being advised to stay indoors and not join social gatherings. Our team are continuing to stay in contact with our Hub members and helping them with shopping etc.

The same day we decided to suspend all Art ‘n Blether classes for the same reason. Our art tutor, Anne, organised a few outdoor art classes following this, but with more recent announcements and advice from the government these have also now been suspended.

Due to the need to protect our staff as they source ingredients, we anticipate our Grab ‘n Go Bags service will be suspended after Friday 27th March.

We are currently doing everything we can to keep our Dinner To Your Door service going as we know how important our hot meals are to so many of our customers. With ever-tightening restrictions and as the number of cases grow we are finding this increasingly challenging, but we will keep going for as long as possible.

We apologies to anyone who has been affected by the closure of suspension of any of our services.

If you have any questions about any of our services at this time please call us on 01431 821655.

We wish you  all the best in the coming weeks and months. Stay safe and well.
