Covid-19 service changes HomeStart East Sussex
Our services have moved to supporting clients via telephone/interactive online platforms. We are already completely cloud based so home-working for staff is not a problem
As well as continuing to support their current clients remotely, I have asked our volunteers to think about coordinating the linking of healthy households with vulnerable households in their own street. If they are in the vulnerable category they may be able to do this without direct contact with others. It would be great to work in a more coordinated way with this across the county with different partners, establishing simple effective working methods that can be implemented quickly.
Homestart has also published a Guide for Victims and Survivors of Abuse
