Community Provider's Coronavirus response


Community Provider's Coronavirus response

As things are returning to normal, community providers are reviewing the way in which they work and provide services.    

Many centres and hubs have reduced/paused face to face operations and offered telephone, online or contactless activities and support for their members.  This will change as we are in Stage 3 of the roadmap out of lockdown. Centres may reopen indoors, there are relaxations to restrictions on outdoor gatherings, and sporting venues and theatres can welcome back spectators.  

Ministers have made a decision on June 14 to pause easing to the final phase of lockdown easing in England with July 19th as the possible new date. 

Where centres have in-person sessions, it's particularly important that you continue to follow official guidance on social distancing, hand washing and face coverings, as well as any rules specified by the activity coordinator if attending a session.

You can view our events calendar to see what online activities you can participate in.

This is the current status of providers and we will update this:
