The safety of the children we work with and our staff/volunteer and sessional workers is our priority and as concerns continue to grow around Coronavirus (COVID-19) we want to reassure you that we are following guidance from the Government, Public Health England and the NHS as we deal with the ever-changing situation.
This evening our prime minister has announced that schools in England will close from Friday.
After much deliberation KOGS have decided to suspend all outreach sessions, 121s and group workshops from our centre. This has not been a decision I have taken lightly but the health and well-being of the children, their families, staff and the wider community are a primary concern.
At this point we will not be taking any new referrals for 121 work to avoid creating a backlog. The 121s and group interventions that have already been allocated will go ahead once the schools reopen and we can coordinate with pastoral teams for these to resume.
I thank you all for your understanding and support at this difficult time and hope that you can appreciate it is not a decision that has been taken lightly.
