Coronavirus Service Update
As of Thursday 19th March, LGBT Foundation has temporarily shifted to become a remote service delivery charity due to the Coronavirus pandemic. This means that all our face-to-face services will be suspended until at least 14th April.
Therefore, we are changing the way we deliver our initial intake assessments for those who refer in to our services. All intake assessments will now be completed remotely. This means that we will either be doing these over the phone or other platforms such as Zoom or WhatsApp.
As you can imagine, our waiting times will be changing but we are aiming to complete assessments within a 4-6 week period. We understand that not everybody will be able to access via these methods, however we are not able to provide any face-to-face services at the moment. Some of our services may not be running over this time, or running in different ways. When you have your assessment, a member of our staff team will work with you to explain the changes that are being made to our services and discuss all of the available methods that we can use to ensure you get the support you need.
It is important to us that people are able to seek support during this difficult time, so if you want to talk to a member of our staff team about any changes or any issues you may face accessing our remote assessments please either call us on 0345 3 30 30 30 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of staff will get back to you as soon as possible.
