- Good Evening everyone.
Here is a little update from us here at SWWFRC.
We are thinking of everyone in our community during this time here & we have spent the last few days considering some changes to the ways we can support you & yours. Under the new restrictions again we have to severely minimise the number of people coming into the Centre & our community.
We are continuing our work in various remote ways at this time, learning, experimenting, failing, trying and making things work as best we can for the moment! If you think of other ways we could we working, or things you would like to see us do, please just let us know!
But, we are still here; at the end of the phone or an email to support you as best we can
Please contact us, whether it’s for information, guidance, a listening ear or a chat, we are here.
We all know it won’t be easy and that we need to work together to ensure we stay safe.
This month is one where as a community really feel the loss of social connection and respect the fragility and gift of life . Although for most people being in isolation, social distancing or cocooning is difficult, we need to make the most of it for our well-being. We need to have a start, middle and end to our days, we need to be able to live our life not just exist through this.
Listen to the birds, feel the heat of the sun and the cold of the breeze, watch the bees and the butterflies.
Our doors may be closed to the public but we are still open for essential services including:
- Remote Counselling services
- QQI Online courses
- Printing, Photocopying and secretarial services. Just Email us on email@example.com and we will leave your request outside in our community collection box.
- Food Cloud Service
- 1-1 online IT supports
- Welfare rights and Information service
- 1-1 family support
- In house Childcare Services for Essential Workers and Remote learning services to Sugradh Childcare Centre registered children and families.
Watch out for future posts as we extend or restrict our services based on public health guidelines .
