Service Updates 

Following the government update on 04/01/21 announcing the next national lockdown Project 6 has been looking at how it will continue at deliver services.

Project 6 remains open in Doncaster, Keighley and Sheffield.

As before, we will continue to offer support digitally through a programme of online activities and by 1:1 telephone calls wherever possible. Through the previous lockdowns we 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:

  • 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

Where necessary and essential some of our other service will continue to offer face to face work. This will be through pre-booked appointments and activities. 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.

Wash your hands
As soon as you arrive at any Project 6 building wash your hands. Please make this the first thing you do before anything else. If you go outside please wash your hands each time you come back inside and again before you leave.

Keep 2 metres apart
This is one of the most important things we are asking people to do. We are continuing to stay 2 metres apart. Please respect this both in and outside. We will politely and respectfully challenge anyone not adhering to this be they a visitor or member of staff.

Follow the one way system
We have put a one way system in place to allow people to move safely around our buildings. Please make sure you follow the arrows, this is especially important on stairways and narrow corridors.

Face coverings
Following the latest government advice, we have updated our guidance on the wearing of face coverings on Project 6 premises. Whenever you are on Project 6 premises we ask you wear a suitable face covering inline with government guidance, this should cover both your mouth and nose. Staff will also be wearing face covering. We appreciate this does sometimes make conversations difficult but this is one of the best ways we can help protect everyone. If you require a face mask we can provide you with one from our limited supply, please speak to a member of staff.

We recognise this guidance can change and we really appreciate your continued support in helping us keep services safe.

While the recent developments of the Coronavirus pandemic may cause anxiety, lead to self-isolating measures and further disruption.

If you are self-isolating, we can support you with:

  1. regular phone calls, texts or e-mails by staff and volunteers
  2. advise on SMART online meetings
  3. organise food drop-offs where possible
