Children and Young People’s Service COVID-19 Update
In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic we at Buckinghamshire Mind are closely following the Government’s guidelines on health and safety measures regarding social distancing. As of July 2020, the Children and Young People’s Team are happy to come into your school to deliver sessions. If your school is allowing external visitors, then we will be careful to follow your safety guidelines. We are also working hard to create online sessions for children, young people, school staff and parents – please get in contact to find out more: firstname.lastname@example.org
