March 2020. Dear Parents and Carers, We have been carefully monitoring the current Covid-19 situation, both national and local advice. As ever, our priority is the families we support, our staff, and our volunteers. At this point in time, we have no reported cases in any staff or volunteers at Bexley Voice. However, as many of our members and families may be considered more ‘at risk’ from Covid-19, it is important that we put the health and wellbeing of them, and our staff andvolunteers, first and support efforts to manage the spread of the virus. For this reason, we will be following advice and will temporarily stop our face to face services, with immediate effect, in line with government guidelines. This includes Tea and Talk Drop ins, School Visits and Workshops. Our team will still be available via:
Facebook – which is by far the quickest way to get a response to any questions you may have. Please see note below re access to the BV Facebook Group
Email - this may be a slower response as the inbox is not currently monitored daily.
We will share any updates and information we are sent from health, social care and Education on the home page of our website – so check www.bexleyvoice.org.uk if you can. Other places to check for up to date information would be:
We know that for many of our members, our services and advice are a vital source of support and recognise the impact this may have, but hope that you will understand and support the steps we have to take to protect us all. We will be keeping in touch via the website, Facebook group and eBulletin, if necessary, through this challenging time. Don’t forget to share any ways you develop to keep our children entertained and calm along with ways to maintain our sanity over the coming weeks with us …. Together we can make a difference. Keep Safe – your Bexley Voice Team
