Covid-19 Update - April 2022

Following the Government update on Friday, 01st April 2022 in which the guidance surrounding COVID-19 was significantly relaxed, we have made a conscious decision, in the interest of our employees, clients and visitors to continue to take reasonable steps in ensuring that our offices remain COVID ‘friendly’. 

Preventive measures, which were put in place to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus within the office environment have proved to be successful, and on that basis, will remain in place indefinitely.

In addition to those preventive measures, a ’Hybrid Working Policy’ has been introduced.  The implementation of the policy means that staffing levels within the office are significantly reduced, thus, reducing the frequency of contact with colleagues and ensuring that the risk of transmission is reduced to the lowest level reasonably practicable.

The use of MS Teams/Zoom will continue to be utilised throughout the pandemic and beyond, as and when appropriate.

We would like to reassure you that we are committed to continuing to provide the same level of excellent service and client care throughout the pandemic and beyond.  We are confident that such measures have not and will not compromise this.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us on 0800 027 2557 between the hours of 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday.

My wife and I are so relieved and overjoyed with outcome and really we only have yourself and The Brain Charity to thank. Clearly my standalone application and appeal was not enough and that the defining factor was your help and guidance. I really am so thankful for all your help, kind words and indeed motivation at times as it is a difficult process and situation to actually be in. 

Mr B, Merseyside

We would like to say Suzanne Sutcliffe is the best person that we have ever dealt with. She has been so warm, welcoming and thoughtful. She has treated us as human beings. Suzie had been so helpful and always goes that extra mile, we can't thank her enough. I really don't know how we would have coped without all her help and hard work. We've been through so much and the lead we got through Reuben's Retreat was like a angel was sent from God to guide us, thank you so much again.
