SMT response to the Covid-19 pandemic

SMT continues to operate our services providing advice, advocacy and support. New ways of getting in contact have been introduced via text and using the website contact form.

We have undertaken robust risk assessments, implemented new procedures and have prepared our buildings to be Covid-19 secure so we can offer face to face appointments when required.

At this time we are planning to recommence group work activities where safe to do so and with fewer participants. We are also planning groups using outdoor spaces where possible and weather permitting! Check our Twitter and Facebook pages for information.

We appreciate your patience and support during this situation and hope to see you shortly.
