SMT response to Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic

SMT are risk assessing daily and responding as advised by government. Our main focus is to protect the health, wellbeing and safety of staff and service users alike. We will continue to deliver our services by exploring and adopting alternative methods of engagement and adjusting our working practices to enable us to function effectively. We have taken the difficult decision to suspend our group activities and non-essential face to face appointments for an initial period of 30 days. This will be closely monitored and any changes will be communicated. We have expanded our remote working capability, as of Monday 23rd March 2020 all SMT staff will be working from home. Please be assured that we will remain in regular contact with our service users, albeit using alternative communication methods, which may cause some disruption to routine delivery of services. We appreciate your patience and support during this uncertain and rapidly changing situation.
We hope you remain safe and well.

We work alongside public services, 3rd sector organisations and all sectors of the community to provide the best services for you.
