In response to Lockdown 3, we would like to assure everyone that we will be doing all we can to maintain the mental health support and services provided by Buckinghamshire Mind and will be remaining open, whilst ensuring that we are compliant with Covid-secure guidelines and regulations.
We are keen to support as many people as possible over the coming weeks, whilst ensuring the safety of all our service users, volunteers and colleagues.
The government is giving a strong endorsement of the voluntary and community sector to continue to provide support across our communities during lockdown. Buckinghamshire Mind is committed to working flexibility to keep our services going, under strict Covid-secure guidelines.
