Our general programme was suspended at the start of the lock down period and we will continue to be directed by Government/ NHS guidelines.
We have rapidly developed a range of remote support services for our individuals and groups who need help to get through the lock down. These include outdoor themed family quizzes, planning groups for future projects including a young mentor backpacking trip and a 1000 mile cycle challenge. Staff and volunteers also communicate regularly with our participants/ members through social media/ phone calls and so on.
We have also loaned out several bikes so that individuals and families can get their local daily exercise on a bike should they choose to do so.
We are also providing 1:1 support for a very small number of members who are/ could experience severe harm through isolation and inactivity during the lock down. We are currently providing this support for 4 or 5 vulnerable young people/ adults and have offered this provision to key partners. This has proved useful as we have also been able to provide information around the pandemic, and the importance of social distancing during lock down to the individuals and their families.
