Unfortunately are cancelling our groups
In the wake of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic Go LD are taking precautionary steps informed by current Public Health England guidelines.
We are cancelling all our groups for the next few weeks and we will reassess the position in due course. We are currently in the process of contacting our members, family, support providers and local groups to inform them of the position. The health and safety of our members and attendees at our groups are paramount.
People with a learning disability experience an increased risk of certain health conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes, heart problems and mental health problems and are in the high risk category. The charity will be fulfilling its mission by helping our members best understand how to behave in this period. We have issued guidance and will be contacting our members by phone, email and via social media. We are aware that changes in routine are particularly difficult for people with learning disabilities so we are working extra hard to keep members safe.
We are also postponing our forthcoming fundraising Quiz Night. This is obviously an ever changing situation and the health and safety of those we engage with, particularly those with learning disabilities who may be of greater risk from the virus, is our paramount concern.
Royal Mencap have some great resources on their website, here is a link to download their easy read guidance.
We would like to know how everyone is coping and to share any new ideas so please tell us your stories and news. Stay in touch by phone on 01962 600281 or follow us on Facebook, Twitter or our website.
Our very best wishes to all at this time.
Jane, Sharron, Tanya and Emma
