COVID-19 and Day Centre Closures
Press Release – Please read
For over 30 years Headway East Kent has provided Day Centres in East Kent for people with an acquired brain injury. These are safe places for our clients and now, as we watch the COVID 19 events unfold across the UK, we need to take further measures in order to protect our clients. After careful consideration, we have taken the decision to close all 5 Day Centre as of Monday 23 March 2020. This is a decision we have not taken lightly and we do so with great sadness, however, the need to keep everyone safe means we have no other choice.
As you are aware this is a dynamic situation with events changing day to day. We will keep abreast of all new Government announcements and we will reopen the Day Centres when the risk posed to our clients, staff, volunteers and students has been significantly reduced.
If you need any support you can call our Day Centres from Tuesday to Friday between 9 am and 4 pm, where one of the centre facilitators will be happy to talk to you. If you have any out of hours’ enquiries or concerns, please call our Area Manager, Jenny Walsh on 07860 226682 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
