News and Updates
Oops! Small correction needed to a casework stat, which apply from June 2019 not 2018. Corrected below.
Dear <<First Name>>:
This update is a bit long, but I'd like to first draw your attention to an important messages to share about shelter opening times.
As you are aware, our shelters open at 8pm, with hot drinks served outside from 7pm onwards. A few reminders to pass on to your teams, please:
- If your shelter has a porch area and you already use this for hot drinks, this must not happen earlier than 7pm. Please do not allow guests anywhere inside the shelter venue before 7pm. This includes not allowing guests inside before staff arrive at 6pm.
- Your Shelter Manager’s decision is final about when is a safe time to allow guests into an indoor porch area. This may vary depending on when the manager has finished their preparation work and can safely supervise the porch area.
- An indoor porch area for hot drinks cannot be used at all if there are children anywhere inside the building, for example if a children’s class is taking place.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org. Your help to ensure volunteers respect these procedures is very much appreciated.
