Adapting to the Crisis


Adapting to the Crisis

The sudden onset of the virus meant that many groups had to quickly re-think the way that they delivered their services, ensuring that they delivered them in the safest way possible for everyone involved. This often involved adapting premises to ensure that they were COVID-safe and making sure that PPE was available to both staff and beneficiaries. 😷 We’re hugely impressed with the way that both Heron’s Lodge and Methodist Homes For The Aged adapted to the crisis and have continued to support their network in a way that is safe and compliant.


Our latest Vital Signs report states that the Youth information Service (YiS) had the most referrals for counselling ever recorded over a 3-month period (April – June 2020), with 180, compared to the 86 they received in 2019 over the same period. As lockdown started, they identified the need for online mental health and wellbeing support for young people with existing mental health difficulties. With a grant from Milton Keynes Community Foundation they were able to respond quickly to set up an online messaging service whereby their team of highly skilled counsellors and wellbeing coaches were on hand to provide advice and guidance.
