Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Changes to our services following government advice

Coronavirus Covid-19 has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation. We are continuously monitoring the subject closely to ensure the safety of the people who need our services as well as our staff and volunteers.

In light of government advice about coronavirus, we have taken the difficult decision to reduce some of our services. Unfortunately, this means we are unable to offer face to face support until further notice. In addition, we will not be able to attend any professional, networking or community events.

Our helpline is still active and we are still here for those who need us as well as for referrals and professionals. Please ring our helpline on 01283 517185 if you need our help or advice. You can also email us at staff@sarac.org.uk

We are also following advice on social isolation, which means we have fewer volunteers and staff available than normal. This may cause delays in answering calls, voicemails and emails but we endeavour to reply as soon as we can. We hope you understand and we thank you for your patience during this difficult time for everyone.

Stay safe and well. Thank you and best wishes from all of the team at sarac.
