Service Updates 

Following the changes to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions on 29/03/21 Project 6 has been looking at how it will continue at deliver services.

Project 6 remains open in Doncaster, Keighley and Sheffield.

More of our services are now starting to deliver face to face and group (up to 6 people) support. We are following guidance to ensure all of these sessions are covid safe. Whenever possible we will be offering group activities outside. At this point all appointments and groups will arranged by pre-booking to help us mange the number on people on site. Speak to a member of the team to find out more details of what’s happening in at your local services.

As before, we will continue to offer support digitally through a programme of online activities and by 1:1 telephone calls. Throughout restrictions we have worked hard to ensure people who use our services had access to adequate technology and reliable internet connections to remain connected. We are working to ensure this is still the case. Staff will be in regular contact with people they are working with to check-in discuss available support.

The following services will continue to offer face to face support as normal:

  • MAST –our support work in Bradford Royal Infirmary
  • NEX Needle Exchange, Keighley – Opening Hours – Mon- Fri, 1pm – 4.30pm 
  • Third Place – continuing to provide meals and support to extremely vulnerable street drinkers

We are asking that people don’t try to attend services others than the ones listed above without first speaking to a member of staff.

We will provide appointment cards/letters for the people who use our services so they can travel to use our services.

If you need our support, call us.

Keep on eye on our social media for the latest information on services in your area.
