During the summer holidays we continued to provide our families with emotional and practical support, including encouraging and supporting day trips for individual families, even if it was only a picnic in the local park. At the start of the new school year we are already supporting families anxious about what will happen and the impact this change will have on their children.
We are also acutely aware that there will be many other families returning to school who will need support, as the challenges of lockdown shift to the challenges of returning to life with a difference. We know that many of our families are very keen for our group activities to resume, but until schools are up and running we are being cautious about restarting them. We are doing this so that our families, volunteers and staff all stay safe.
Staff are returning to Garton House from Tuesday 1 September – the office will be open Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm. We are all looking forward to being able to meet face-to-face again and being able to continue supporting families.
