The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic severely impacted our short breaks and day services which have been closed, in line with Government advice and to ensure the safety of our customers and staff, since Lockdown.
Sunderland Care and Support have been working closely with Local Authority Adult Social Care (ASC) on recovery plans for these services, which are complex given the diverse nature of each of these services and the issues involved in re-opening safely.
We are now confident that our Recovery Plans and Risk Assessments have enabled us to begin preparations for the reopening of Short Breaks and Day services.
We acknowledge the impact the closure of these services has had upon our customers and their families and appreciate the efforts of parents and carers. We would like to express our thanks for your patience during this time.
Colleagues from ASC, along with ourselves, will provide more information on the reopening and details about the ‘new-normal’ for both short breaks and day services very soon.
