Covid-19 A Message from the SGNS Trustees
If you are over 70 or you have been told by the NHS by text, email or letter you should shield (stay at home for 12 weeks), don’t have family or others who can support you and need supplies or prescriptions call our SGNS Helpline number (01522 412199) even if you are not one of our regular clients.

The warnings and advice regarding the Covid-19 virus are well publicised and we should, by now, all be aware of the precautions that we need to take.
Any volunteer with even the slightest signs of infection, or who is self-isolating, should not accept any assignments. Volunteers over 70 years of age should also not undertake any assignments for your own safety.
SGNS is not currently providing our usual transport services as we want to ensure we do not risk spreading Covid-19 to our clients or volunteers. Government advice is that you should stay at home except for the most exceptional circumstances with all routine medical appointments cancelled.
For our 'regular' weekly clients, we have tried to make alternative arrangements to support them while they remain at home.
We are also appealing for volunteers from the community to assist us, in addition to our regular SGNS volunteers.
We are dealing with an unpredictable situation and will do our best to support our clients and urge all you all to take care.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch with any of the Trustees.
