Broomwood: What’s On?

What’s On at Broomwood Wellbeing Centre

If you would like to join in any of the activities, but feel a bit unsure, just pop in or contact us and one of our friendly colleagues will meet and introduce you.

As you may know, the government changed their restrictions and guidance around Covid-19 on the 19th July 2021. We know the changes will have left some of us nervous about re-joining groups and accessing services at the centre, so here is a list of the ways we are continuing to make your visit to the centre safe:

• Although we have increased room capacities, we are asking activity leaders and partners to ventilate rooms where possible.
• Our QR codes are still available for visitors to check in at the centres.
• Our staff to continue regularly testing themselves for Covid.
• We encourage volunteers and visitors to continue to wear masks when walking around the building and in areas of low ventilation.
• We still have hand sanitiser stations around the building.

Please do not hesitate to contact the centre if you have any queries about how we are staying safe, or if you are interested in running an activity in the centre. You can contact us on 0161 980 0720 or email emma@bluesci.org.uk or andrew.hodson@bluesci.org.uk
