We are making sure that, during this challenging time, all our members, their families and carers feel connected, supported and safe.

To help stop the spread of Coronavirus we suspended some of our services earlier this year.  We are pleased to be able to tell you that we are now returning to Day Resource sessions at our services in Ramsgate, Margate, Herne Bay and Sheerness. We have completed risk assessments and are confident that we are able to provide a safe place for Members to attend in ‘bubbles’.

We understand that not everyone is ready to return to Day Resource and are still providing virtual sessions.

We will continue to review our other services but in the meantime, there is still plenty of online content across our social media channels.

On Mondays we have Motivation Mondays, where our Community Fundraising Officer Demi does a Facebook live. Throughout the week, we share content from our members about what they are getting up to at home and supported by our staff.

Thank you to everyone who has been sending in photos, stories and comments. We love hearing from you!

If you need some advice about Coronavirus, check out the resources we have available in the News section of our website here.

Our wonderful East Kent Mencap community can still be connected, even if we’re not all physically together for the time being.

If you have any ideas for content we could share, have feedback or are interested to know more about East Kent Mencap, do email marketing@eastkentmencap.co.uk

Remember to tune in to Demi’s Facebook lives every Monday lunchtime!

Stay safe,

From the whole East Kent Mencap team
