KEEP IN TOUCH SCHEME

During lockdown, two staff from the Centre worked at home, and recruited 6 additional volunteers Рto run a phone-call-based keeping in touch scheme.

Funded by the Communities Can Grants programme, the team were able to ring people daily, or several times a week, for a catch up call and chat. People were either referred to the scheme by other agencies, or had existing links to the Centre, and were either isolated or vulnerable.

Up to 70 people were contacted, and over 2,000 calls were made and conversations had to ensure people were ok and safe in their circumstances.

CENTRE REOPENING

Community Wise is gradually reopening its Centre with groups now returning if it is safe to do so. It’s not quite business as usual, as open access to the building is no longer possible due to government restrictions.
