Like many of you we have had to make changes to the way we work in the face of the COVID 19 pandemic.

Since March 2021 our Centre Based Services have been reopened with a gradual return of clients.

This means that our full programme of Life Skills activity sessions is running at both our Willenhall and Dudley Centres.

We will be continuing with reduced remote support services, including online activity sessions and weekly activity packs for those clients unable to return to Centre based sessions. Please contact us for more details about these if you are an existing client.

All other services continue to operate as set out below:

Tips for Staying Active;

Matt is a student Physiotherapist at the University of Wolverhampton. He was on placement with us but that was cut short by Lockdown 2 . He has created and stars in this video of a student OT led, seated home exercise program.

It is specifically designed for people looking to increase physical activity from the comfort of their own home.

This program may be useful to those who are currently still restricted in getting out and about.

Please follow all the recommended safety measures included in the video.

We have pulled together some ideas and tips to help our you stay physically well and cognitively active when Staying at Home as part of social distancing. View or download our leaflet as a reminder.
