West Berkshire Coronorvirus Diaries

(See below an excerpt from a centre manager at Dingley's Promise)
 
'' Not seeing the children and families we work with face to face is hard for all of us as we are so used to being able to chat, play and support them on a daily basis. This is also true of the team I work with as we are such a close team who enjoy the work we do and look out for each other. To ensure that wellbeing is looked after, we are making regular phone calls to all of our families as well as sending emails.

As the manager of my team I would normally do team meetings and individual supervisions face to face within our setting. I am now doing this weekly via video calls as I know that working from home is not something that my staff ever imagined themselves doing.''
