Following the government guidance announced yesterday (Mon 16th Mar) we have taken the decision to cancel all upcoming events as they are ‘non-essential’ and bring people together which raises the potential risk of transmitting the virus in our community.
We have also advised all our Prospects Panels and Forums to do the same.
As a charity we have a duty of care to look after our volunteers and beneficiaries and as such we need to follow the government guidance to the full.
We will review the guidance daily and as soon as we are able to start hosting events again then we will obviously do so and let everyone know via e-mail, the website and social media.
We fully appreciate that volunteering outdoors is beneficial in so many ways to our volunteers in terms of socialising, health and wellbeing and as such we would recommend that you also follow the guidance given and as long as we are allowed to, take advantage of getting outdoors, even for short walks on your own!
