In these challenging times, our services are needed more than ever. In response to the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19, Open Support continues to provide critical support to those vulnerable in our community, while taking a number of actions to ensure the safety and continued wellbeing of our clients, our volunteers and staff.
This includes the suspension of all volunteer activity and the adjustment of the way we deliver our key programmes. Open Support will continue to support:
· Those who are socially isolated
· Those who are impacted by Domestic and Family Violence
· Those who are in regional or remote areas and require access to healthcare services
We are closely monitoring the situation and we will continue to adjust our safeguards and precautions to reduce the risk of infection from COVID-19.
