As you will no doubt have seen in the media over the past few days, because of the spread of Coronavirus, Covid-19, governments in many countries are already advising their citizens to take the necessary precautions. This development is expected to intensify over the next few days and weeks. All the indications are that the impact of the virus is very likely to increase in the near future as we move from the “contain” phase of response to “delay”.
With that in mind, Amina MWRC is taking a range of measures designed to ensure we continue to engage with our communities and provide quality services.
Our offices in Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow will not be open to the public from Tuesday 17th March 2020 for a period until the health risk to our staff and service users has reduced significantly. We can still be contacted by email or through our main number (01412128420). Unfortunately, we will be cancelling all face-to-face meetings and events for the foreseeable future as a precaution, but staff will be able to contact you by phone or hold video meetings.
Our Helpline and Telephone Befriending services will operate as normal during this time. The Helpline is available Monday to Friday, between 10AM and 4PM.
We appreciate that all our colleagues in the public, third and private sectors will also be affected by Covid-19. Please contact staff at Amina MWRC by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the first instance if you need further information or wish to discuss any concerns.
We will keep organisations and our service users informed of changes to our business continuity plans.
