Equal People Mencap is continuing to provide care and support to our members, service users and their carers and meet the challenges set by the COVID-19 outbreak. Our priority is to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all concerned: those we support, carers, volunteers and staff.
Our activities and community support has moved online and to phones. You will be hearing more from Sonia and Sophie, shortly about online wellbeing and yoga groups. We are also ringing everyone who regularly came to our Resource Centre every day.
Our Floating Support service continues to provide 1:1 support to adults and children living independently in the community
Including personal care, finance, food, shopping and coping with the stress of self isolation. We are providing additional support to Those who have lost their other networks e.g.. work, clubs, colleges and continuing to provide full day and 24 hour support where it is needed.
