Inclusion Gloucestershire Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources & Services

At Inclusion Gloucestershire we continue to work as hard as we can to support disabled people and people with mental ill health during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of our services have reopened but with limited numbers and additional safety measures. Most staff are working from home in line with government advice.

Free services that we are offering:

We are connecting with all existing and new followers on social media, sharing information, signposting to specific support, and sharing fun things that we can do to keep us busy, or just help us cope in the current situation:

 

We are providing face to face support through:

  • Our Gloucester Hub (on an invite-only basis, please contact clareh@inclusion-glos.org if you would like to come)
  • Our Dramatic Change drama group (please contact drama@inclusion-glos.org if you would like to come)
  • From May – our Forest of Dean and Cheltenham Hubs

 

We are providing remote support and contact to our members who would normally come to MHELO, the BME Friendship Hub, or who are part of our wider networks.

GEM we are still offering 1-to-1 employment support, with all our participants. Contact is currently via phone or email with some appointments with participants taking place if pre-arranged. We are open to referrals – please contact our Navigator Developer, Emily Ashman.
