We think it's really important at this time to keep in touch and look after one another.
As a charity, we provide a key service to patients of St Andrew's Healthcare and community service users, helping them to develop their confidence and work skills at Workbridge.
We have closed our day sessions throughout the covid-19 pandemic and are currently planning to re-open them safely later this year.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new virus.
The main symptoms of coronavirus are a cough, loss of smell or taste and a high temperature. For some people, it can cause difficulty breathing.
Most people recover and do not need hospital treatment.
To reduce the spread, we need to regularly wash our hands for 20 seconds each time and observe the social distancing measures set by the UK government.
