Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We continue to address the ongoing threat of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, in line with Government advice.

We are committed to protecting people we support during this time and have developed continuity plans to ensure the support we provide isn’t compromised, even during lockdown circumstances.

To ensure that we are able to react quickly to any changes in Government guidance or local circumstances, our executive and senior leadership teams are meeting a minimum of three times a week. All Brandon staff are being provided with a comprehensive briefing at least once a week. This brief summarises the latest advice from Government and other official sources, and clearly sets out the actions that staff should take as a result.

We are continually monitoring and adapting our plans in line with guidance from the Government and Public Health England.

Visiting arrangements under the current national lockdown

Further to the Government announcement on Monday 4 January, the national lockdown restrictions apply to all those living in supported living houses. 

For those people in registered care homes, visits can take place providing certain strict criteria are met. Please contact your staff team to discuss what might be possible. 

For as long as the Government restrictions do not permit face to face visiting, we are committed to enabling the people we support to stay in touch with family and friends by whatever other means we can.
