COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response Statement

We realise that this is a time of uncertainty for everyone and want to assure you that we have the welfare of our participants, staff and volunteers, as a priority at this very challenging time.

Options for Life is following advice from Central/Local Government and Public Health England which means unfortunately we have had to close our community-based hubs. We are still supporting participants through Outreach and are continuously looking at other ways we can provide support.

The health and wellbeing of our staff and participants is our top priority, and everyone is encouraged to maintain good hygiene practices.
