Member Update 07/05/2021

Dear FUN Members

Following the meeting of the FUN management staff and the Board of Trustees we would like to update the membership of changes made.

FUN is committed to ensuring the safety of all members – at this time we are monitoring the current situation to ensure the delivery of our services in a Covid safe way.

The Vaccination programme has made an impact on the reduction of the spread of the virus so far.  All staff working across the services have been encouraged to receive the vaccine.

As an additional precaution we will now be testing all staff prior to any service.

The staff will be tested onsite to ensure tests are done correctly and the results will be seen by a lead member of staff to ensure the safety of those accessing the service.

Staff will still be required to wear masks and will continue to follow social distancing rules and handwashing techniques.

We await further updates from the government and will be updating members again after the 21st June 2021 when it is anticipated that restrictions will be lifted.

Respite Services Bookings

Senior Respite Club (9-18yrs)

At present we are still running a reduced service at Senior Respite Club.  Currently there are only 15 spaces available at every session.

We will continue to book places using the request system as per the June Respite sessions.

Members will receive an email on the 28th May 2021 showing the dates available for July 2021.  The cut off dates for requests will be 7th June 2021 and these can be made by email to info@familiesunitednetwork.org.uk or by contacting the office 01582 420800.

Allocations of places will be made by our Lead co-ordinator, all members will be informed of their allocated session dates on 11th June 2021.  We will try wherever possible to meet your request for dates but sessions will be distributed fairly amongst members, so you may not receive a place on all the dates requested.

Junior Respite Club (4-11yrs)

At Junior Respite Club we will continue offer the Morning (9.30am-12.30pm) and Afternoon (1.30pm-4.30pm) Sessions.  As previously advised, Bookings for June 2021 sessions go on sale at 10am on Monday 10th May 2021.

Bookings for JULY 2021 will be available to book from 10am on the 10th June 2021.   Bookings can be made on the website www.familiesunitednetwork.org.uk or by calling the office on 01582 420800.

Holiday Club

We will again be offering 2-hour sessions across each day accommodating four households at a time (as we did at Christmas).  Holiday club dates are 1st June, 2nd June and 4th June 2021.  Session times will be:  9.30am to 11.30am, 12 noon to 2pm and 2.30pm to 4.30pm.

Family holiday club sessions will go on sale at 10am on Wednesday 12th May 2021 – please call the office on 01582 420800 to make your booking.  

Fees for these family sessions will be our normal holiday club rates – £6 per child, £15 for three or more children.  Unfortunately, members will again be restricted to one booking per family, to allow us to help as many families as possible; and we will again be operating a waiting list in case of any cancellations.   Our usual Covid policies for accessing this club will continue to apply.

Please look out for our emails, Facebook posts and the information on our website for further updates about our services. 

Many thanks & kind Regards

FUN Staff & Trustees
