The Booth Centre has remained open throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, providing essential support and a safe place for people to share their experiences and learn from each other. We have once again redesigned our service to react to the changing landscape of Covid-19.
From the beginning of June, we were able to stop operating in two service ‘bubbles’ so that people coming into the centre can now access both upstairs and downstairs in our building. Everyone has been happy to be able to see each other again, as the ‘bubbles’ meant some people hadn’t crossed paths in months! More people are now able to have breakfast and lunch in our café and access the activities taking place in the Centre.
As well as activities such as gardening, art and drama, we are continuing to support people with accommodation referrals, resettlement applications, qualifications and more. As always, all of this is achieved in partnership with people who attend the centre – who contribute their skills and experience to help us strive for best practice. See the poster below for full details of the current service - to book please call 0161 835 2499.
Rigorous Covid-19 measures remain in place to keep our community safe – including track and trace, hand-washing, social distancing, mask-wearing and more. We are also continuing to limit the number of people coming into the Centre, so it’s best for people to book ahead for activity sessions.
We are continuing to support people who are not attending the Centre in-person with regular telephone support, and our SMS text service.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our wonderful supporters – you’re helping us to continue our important work during this difficult time.
