A Message from Karen Our Manager
Wanted to take the time to bring an update from all of us here at Melton Mencap.
Its fantastic that restrictions have been lifted nationally, however, here at Melton Mencap we recognise it is important for our clients safety that we remain precautious in our working approach.
Staff will still wear face coverings in indoor settings, close contact work and will continue to sanitise hands, equipment and surfaces.
Our numbers for indoor groups has increased, however we will still have a limit at this time to help ease us back into things at a steady pace.
Our Summer Scheme for 2021 is nearly at end, I want to thank all the staff behind the scenes making this happen in challenging times and all the staff who have put themselves forward to work and volunteer. The children and young people have had a great time and been able to enjoy some fantastic sessions. Well done everyone.
Lastly to let everyone know we are revamping the Melton Mencap Hall, kitchen and installing a utility room. We have had successful funding bids to enable us to get this work agreed.
The work begins on Saturday 21st August and will be completed by Sunday September 5th. This will have an impact in access to the space so please check with staff if you have any questions or concerns.
We are excited to be getting the work done and give the centre a much needed facelift and widen our service offer further.
I hope everyone has been enjoying the Summer
