COVID-19 - Latest Information

In this short video I wanted to provide you with my personal reassurance of the support Bield is providing for our community to protect your health and wellbeing supporting you during this difficult time.

In response to the Government’s announcement on 23 March 2020 there are some immediate actions we are taking

  1. Due to the restrictions on social gatherings all our dining rooms are closed.  For customers who have a meal service the meals will be delivered to your home. Where we have the capacity, this service will be offered to vulnerable people where a meal service is provided.
  2. We are only able to respond to emergency repairs. Please continue to report these using the normal telephone number. Your call is likely to go to an answer machine but please leave a message and one of the team will respond.
  3. Where possible staff are working from home and a resource plan has been developed that enables us to do this and continue to provide our service by prioritising essential tasks. Your patience is appreciated as we implement this.
  4. We are reaching out to our volunteer network to provide additional support for our customers where required. I will be writing to you to ask what help you need. We will also link in with local support as we are aware that there is already inspirational acts of kindness and I am hugely grateful to all involved.
