PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT COMMUNICATION FROM OUR CEO, ANNE LYALL
Northumberland CVA is a community based organisation providing a number of services to the voluntary and community sector throughout Northumberland. Much of our work requires us to work with and for the community. However we are mindful of our responsibilities to our staff and our volunteers in working to limit the spread of the Covid-19 Coronavirus.
As a first step, we will be closing the office to the general public from Wednesday 18th March 2020, until the end of April, when we will review the current situation.
All external bookings for the conference room will be cancelled.
As much of the work Northumberland CVA undertakes is public facing and involves working with individuals and communities, we will be stopping all face to face support and meetings.
However, we will endeavour to continue to provide both telephone and email communication with groups and individuals.
We recognise that as an infrastructure organisation we may be called upon to co-ordinate responses to the current crisis and we are currently contacting all VCSE organisations to see if we can co-ordinate a central point for people to be able to access information and advice.
Northumberland CVA will monitor the situation for office cover and it is likely in the coming days we may have to have more staff working from home. If this changes because people are ill, self-isolating or having to care for children if schools close we will let you know.
In the meantime, please continue to contact us on 01670 858688 or use your usual email address
