Due to the recent guidelines in relation to Coronavirus, in helping to avoid the spread of this virus the CLASP Board has decided with regret to cease the lunch clubs and activities provided for older people at the HOPE Resource Centre, Community Office and the Digital Classes – including at outreach venues. This is to protect the older people and staff and this will be from immediate effect until further notice. We appreciate this will be disappointing for people however we hope you understand that we did not come to this decision lightly as the whole ethos of the project is to help support people suffering from loneliness and social isolation. Should the situation change we hope to contact people and get classes and activities up and running again as soon as possible.

CLASP are currently looking at how we as an organisation can put our resources to the best use in order to support our most vulnerable older people during this critical period.

The safety and health and wellbeing of our older people, staff and volunteers are paramount to us and I would like to thank the staff and volunteers for their continued loyalty and support over this trying time.
