CORONAVIRUS: IMPACT ON OUR SERVICES

 

UPDATED 18 MARCH 2020

 

Due to the ongoing situation with regards to the coronavirus outbreak the George House Trust building will be closed with effect from Friday March 20th until further notice.

 

We are taking this course of action reluctantly - but we hope that you will agree that, in the circumstances, it is the most sensible thing to do.

 

This means that we need to make changes to working arrangements which will have a significant impact on the services we can provide.

 

Staff will be working from home and will be able to provide one to one support by phone. Similarly, our volunteer peer mentors will provide telephone support and the programme remains open for referrals.

 

From 9am on Friday March 20th, if you are in need of support, advice or information and would like to speak to someone please email talk@ght.org.uk and include your telephone number in your message and we will call you back.

 

We cannot provide the following services until further notice:

 

  • Group events
  • Counselling
  • Volunteer Driving
  • Manchester City Council Welfare Rights appointments
  • Welfare Fund applications

 

Arrangements are also in place to continue to provide:

 

  • Formula Milk
  • Support for people who are destitute

 

We are keeping up to date with any new information about coronavirus and HIV which we will publish on the George House Trust website www.ght.org.uk and our social media platforms.

 

We want to assure you that we will continue to provide the very best services we possibly can in these challenging circumstances – but we also need to be clear that the same levels of support we normally provide simply won’t be possible at this time.

 

We are keeping the situation under constant review and we will update this page when there are any planned changes to these arrangements.

 

We look forward to being able to resume normal service again soon.
