Lock-down

Programme Diary

Posted 19th March.

Lock-down

We are now online only as a full lockdown has begun. At BuDS we are really pleased that volunteers wish to continue at this difficult time.  We are hearing that many other organisations are struggling to function which makes the achievements of Reach4Work volunteers all the more impressive.

We are now totally reliant on our task boards and video/messaging channels.  One volunteer joined last week, so it was great to see them keen to learn in a new way.

The focus of today’s work: adapting to communicating online for the next few weeks.
