November covid and lockdown update
We find ourselves in uncertain times. However, throughout the covid-19 pandemic and still, here at Trevi, we are doing all we can to keep our services running smoothly. The wellbeing of our staff and the women and children continues to remain our central concern.
Jasmine Mother’s Recovery and Daffodil Family Centre
Our residential services continue to remain open, and we continue to process new referrals for Jasmine Mother’s Recovery and Daffodil Family Centre.
The full therapeutic programme is running at Jasmine and we continue to be ‘business as usual’. At Jasmine, to minimise footfall in and out of the centre, we continue to operate a ‘lockdown model’ whereby staff members work 48-hour live-in shifts. This has always been essential due to the small babies and vulnerable mothers on site.
We continue to carry out higher levels of screening at admission and on a regular basis (for both staff and residents), and residents are being supported to follow the guidance around social distancing if they go out into the community. Our staff are continuously using PPE and sanitiser. We are all working together to make sure that we adhere to tight infection control practices.
We continue to keep one apartment free at Jasmine should a mother and child(ren) need to self-isolate.
All admin staff are working from home to further reduce footfall, and courses and therapies are carried out over Zoom during lockdown periods.
We are closely following the advice from Public Health and the Senior Management team are reviewing our Covid risk assessments regularly.
Sunflower Women’s Centre
Sunflower Women’s Centre will continue to operate virtually with more courses and groups converting back online during this latest lockdown. Our Sunflower Practitioners will continue to provide 1-1 appointments via phones, Zoom, and Whatsapp support. Our main office number is 01752 977614.
We are able to offer some limited face-to-face contact at the centre but for crisis situations only. Our Sunflower Women’s Centre remains part of the ‘safe space’ scheme and will remain open for anyone who is fleeing DA and needs a safe space to seek assistance.
Strict infection control measures will remain at the centre; including temperature checks, face masks, strict social distancing, hand sanitiser and a deep clean carried out daily across the centre.
