HOST’s response to Coronavirus – information for families

As you will be aware, the Coronavirus, or Covid-19, is making us all adjust our day-to-day lives and the way in which we are able to offer support to you and your family will have to change for a while. 

We will be doing whatever we can to maintain regular contact with you but staff are being asked to work from home wherever possible so this contact may have to change to support over the phone or via Facetime/Skype etc. 

We know that the current situation will impact on your volunteer’s ability to visit and these visits may have to go on hold for a while.  All of our groups will also be suspended for a while.

It is really important that you let us know if you or anyone in your household has any symptoms and is self-isolating so that we can plan our support to you accordingly.

We know that the current situation is also making it difficult for families to get hold of the essentials they need such as food, baby milk, nappies etc.  Please do let us know if you are struggling and we will do our very best to offer support with this wherever possible.

We also know that this can be a very worrying time for children and there are some child-friendly resources that can help you to explain here:

Please do contact the office if you have any questions or concerns on 0161 344 0669.

We know this is a very worrying time and will be doing everything we possibly can to make sure that you still get the support you need so please stay in regular touch with us. 

We have a very creative staff team that will be doing their absolute best to make sure that we are still here for you, just in different ways.    

Yours sincerely

Sarah Cook

CEO
