The Director of Care and Health for Staffordshire has quoted that Community/Building Based Day Services can begin to open so long as they are Covid -19 complaint. This means that social distancing and infection control (e.g. hygiene and PPE) are maintained and day service individuals are fully risked assessed. However, this update does not currently apply to Community Learning based courses or the Building Better Opportunities Programme at the moment.

Upper Moreton Rural Activities has been working towards opening Day Services in a reduced way over the last few weeks (taking into consideration the above) and has started to take participants back at a reduced level. To reduce the risk of the virus spreading, we have not be able to open to all participants, especially those people who are living in supported living arrangements, to both safe guard individuals and people at the farm by reducing transmission contacts.

Sadly, the farm will remain closed to our valued volunteers, but it is hoped that “staggered” volunteering placements will resume over the next few weeks.

For Day Services we will be getting in touch with families and carers who we are not already in contact with to discuss individual participants needs. If participants are not able to access the farm, we will continue to support these people remotely, but we also understand that for some you may not wish to fund this type of service.

I look forward to welcoming participants back to the farm, whilst recognising it may be some months before everyone can return. On behalf of the staff and Directors I would like to thank you for your continued support of Upper Moreton Rural Activities CIC.

Carol Carney

Director
