Coronavirus Information

Updated 07/04/20

Service Updates 

We are currently changing our services to focus on delivering our support to you via the telephone and digitally. We want to make sure we support you as safely as possibly. From Monday the 23rd we will not be delivering any groups and really reducing our face to face 1-1s. 

We will be delivering services from no. 6 Temple Street (NEX) and Devonshire Street.

We have refocused our face to face service delivery in to three key areas: 

  1. Looking after our most vulnerable people via the Needle Exchange and the Third Place
  2. Increasing and delivering our Keighley Pathways Service to those people in crisis – ideally by phone but we will see people who need a face to face conversation. 
  3. Our support work at the BRI and AGH 

For those people coming in to see us, please expect to follow physical distancing advice of 2 meters and to be asked to wash your hands on entering and leaving our premises. We may need to offer people slots to come and access these services so we do not have unnecessary groups of people waiting around together. Please follow any instructions our staff give you.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for any further information or call our office on 01535 608631.

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


Government Advice

Coronavirus (COVID-19): what you need to do

As of 23 March 2020 the Government has announced new rules people have to follow to help tackle the coronavirus emergency and slow the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19). The critical guidance instructs people to:

Stay home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work
  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • Anyone can spread the virus.

Full guidance on staying at home and away from others 

Other guidance includes:

  • You can travel to and from work if absolutely necessary
  • Public gatherings of more than two people are banned – excluding people you live with
  • Don’t visit other people’s houses or socialise outside your home
  • Police can fine you if you don’t follow the rules
  • If unwell, isolate yourself and your family
  • Keep in touch with one another
  • If you need medical advice then access NHS 111 online at or by dialling 111 on your phone (only if you cannot do so online).

Please remember that people can still be carriers of the virus and have no symptoms – so we need to go a lot further than simply avoiding people who are unwell.

Health advice

Coronavirus, or Covid-19, has spread to many countries, including the UK, since the first case was reported in Wuhan, China late last year.

The Department of Health and Social Care will be publishing updated data on Coronavirus (Covid-19) every day at 2pm until further notice. A new web page contains a dashboard tracker for cases in the UK.

Covid-19 is a virus with similar symptoms to flu or a cold. The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

What to do if you or someone in your home develops symptoms

If you live with someone who has a ‘new continuous’ cough or high temperature, stay at home for 14 days in case symptoms develop

Stay at least three steps away from other people in your home if possible

If your symptoms get worse or no better after 7 days seek medical advice

There are some simple and effective actions everyone can take to protect themselves and their wider community:

Wash hands for about 20 seconds using soap and hot water or use a hand sanitiser gel

Use a tissue for coughs and sneezes

If you don’t have a tissue use your sleeve

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

Use the online coronavirus service at

The NHS 111 online coronavirus service can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do. Only call if you cannot get help any other way. Don’t visit your GP, hospital or any other care setting for support.
