We hope you all had a most enjoyable Christmas and were able to share it with people close to you. We closed for the week between Christmas and New Year to give staff a chance to recoup and enjoy the festive season. A small number of staff returned to work after New years day, to provide an emergency service for people in need. We have found that this is a particularly stressful time for some people, and most community services close so there is little support available. This was true this year, and our staff were run off their feet trying to ensure people received some support. We provided an emergency foodbank service, as well as being available to provide reassurance and support to others who needed advice and information.
All our staff (mostly) are now back at work, and our service continues to operate as normal. We look forward to the new year and all the challenges it brings.
