Hi everyone, hope you are all ok
All of our staff have been busy thinking and planning ways and to keep in contact with our service users who may be missing a bit of social interaction at this very difficult time.
So far, some of the ways we have been maintaining contact is by:
**Phoning people directly for a chat and to check in with them
**Zoom sessions (like FaceTime/Skype where multiple users can chat and see each other)
**Facebook live sessions: we’ve had, dancing, poem of the day, Makaton signing and grooming & make-up routines
**We also have our Private Facebook WDSL Social Contact group up and running. This is for Service users and Parents/Carers only and can be found at (if you would like to be added- request to join in Facebook or drop us a message
In the meantime if you need to contact us, you can message us on here (in the comment sections), message us on Facebook, phone us (all services phones have been diverted to staff mobile phones).
I’m sure there will be a few more ideas popping up over the next few weeks- so keep a lookout for those 🙂
Thanks all and keep those spirits up!!
