COVID-19

Throughout the COVID-19 outbreak Project 6 will continue to stay open and support you in the best way we can.

For many of our services we are offering a blend of mostly face-to-face and some online support. This provides flexibility and help ensure we keep you and our staff as safe as possible.

If you have any concerns or questions about COVID-19 and our services or returning to our buildings, please get in touch. A member of our team will be happy to speak to you about how we can best support you.

–  Wear a mask or appropriate face covering

–  Sanitise you hands regularly

Your wellbeing

It’s important that we look after our own wellbeing, during a pandemic this becomes essential. We mustn’t forget that this includes our mental wellbeing.

Don’t stayed glued to the news

Limit your exposure to news that might make you feel anxious or distressed about the situation. Remember that during an outbreak there is heightened attention in the media and on social media platforms.

This doesn’t mean you need to ignore what’s happening around you but establish the facts and then try to avoid rolling coverage of the same story.

Connect with others

Staying connected is always important, isolating ourselves physically doesn’t mean we have to cut off all our social networks. If you have self-isolate, or know someone who is, use digital platforms to communicate. Try and stay in your daily routine as well as possible.

Keep moving

Exercise regularly, get good sleep and eat healthy food. All of these are proven to go a long way in helping our own wellbeing.

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

–  regular phone calls, texts or e-mails by staff and volunteers

–  access to online groups and activities

–  advice on online SMART meetings

–  organise food drop-offs where possible
