Almost Weekly News No.1 – 25/03/2020
We’re replacing our nearly monthly newsletter with a new nearly weekly one.
We will use this newsletter to update you on what our plans are for the following week and where you can access any WT resources.
We’ve also added a new section here on our website that will provide links to information, including Advice & Guidance, Help and Support and a list of useful Resources.
Most importantly, stay safe and stay healthy everyone!
Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update
Activity packs coming soon…
At Working Together we always think of our members, volunteers and staff as one big extended family and even though we have had to close our doors temporarily we still want to be able offer any support we can – especially for anyone feeling anxious, isolated, lonely or struggling with the changes to normal routine.
WT staff that are able to will continue to work from home, planning and preparing a whole host of new and exciting activities and opportunities for when we will be able to re-open the doors!
And, whilst we may not be able to be together in the same rooms for a while there are lots of different ways we hope to keep in touch.
We are working out ways we can offer virtual activity sessions, through video and digital communications – we will be looking into ways we can try to share cookery and craft activities in our own homes, setting up virtual Sewing Bee, Writers and Sports Clubs and sharing Working Together messages through our phones, tablets and laptops and via Facebook, our website and YouTube account.
We would encourage members and their families to think about drawing pictures and writing letters as ways of keeping in touch in the coming weeks, perhaps creating a new Pen Pal network.
We will also endeavour to continue to offer support to families and will keep in contact by telephone, mobile phones or other messaging services – as well as through Facebook our website and YouTube Channel whenever we can.
By next week, we hope to have put together some activity packs which we will distribute electronically (or by post for those not online).
In the meantime, if you feel there is anything you might be able to contribute by way of sharing ideas, recipes, pictures etc please email:
