Coronavirus is a challenging issue, and we are actively managing the situation.

We are now offering three online sessions a day. There are two regular sessions, our Chat Club at 1.30pm each day, and Penny’s story reading at 4.00pm each day.

At 11.00am we are running different sessions drawn from those we would normally offer at the Centre including art and craft, cooking and music.

As well as our regular students this service is open to all members of the learning  disabilities community who will be given a warm welcome.

If you would like more information, or would like to join our online sessions please contact us at [email protected]

Please do your very best to stay safe, and to take care of friends, family, neighbours and colleagues.  

We wish you all the very best during this difficult time, and we are grateful for your continued support

Coronavirus Statement

 

As Coronavirus continues to impact our lives, we want to reassure you that as ever, our priority is the health and safety of our students and our staff.  We are proactively managing this ever-changing situation, and we are following best practice and guidance from Kent County Council and from Public Health England.  We have taken these additional measures:

  • Excellent hygiene is always a priority, and we have reinforced government guidelines by increasing training for staff and students.
  • We have cancelled all non-essential meetings and on-site visits
  • All food in the Café is covered
  • Where practical we are operating social distancing

 

Our Skills Centre, The Café and the Garden Centre are still open, but we ask you to please stay at home if you are unwell.  For more information regarding Coronavirus see www.gov.uk/coronavirus

We know that at The Fifth Trust we provide an essential service for our students, their families and carers, and so long as is possible, we will stay open.  However, this is a challenging issue, and we are actively managing the situation with daily senior management meetings.

Please do your very best to stay safe, and to take care of friends, family, neighbours and colleagues.  We wish you all the very best during this difficult time, and we are grateful for your continued support.

With very best wishes
