fortnightly update for volunteer coordinators
Dear <<First Name>>:
Glass Door's guidance was updated yesterday to reflect the rapidly evolving landscape and the latest government guidelines around the coronavirus outbreak.
As per an email from Megan sent to volunteer coordinators and our partners last night, the current plan is for shelters to stay open for existing shelter guests, but we are no longer referring new guests into the shelters. We have also stopped our dinner-only service. These policies will be reviewed regularly, and we will continue to send updates as new procedures come into place. You can find details and more information specific for you (and volunteers and staff) in our online coronavirus hub
Staff and volunteers have been quick to adapt to the constantly changing advice and working hard to keep everyone safe. We are in uncharted waters, but together we are finding new ways of working and supporting each other. As we weigh considerations that affect the well-being of guests, partners, staff and volunteers, your calm and caring attitudes and actions are appreciated. Thank you for your commitment, thoughtfulness and support throughout the winter, and especially during this challenging time.
