In view of the anticipated new legal restrictions that are expected to come into force on Thursday 5th November, we sadly, must suspend all planned one-to-one befriending visits and home assessments.
This decision is necessary to ensure that WNB is fully compliant with the law but also is intended to ensure, as far as possible, the health and safety of everyone at West Norfolk Befriending.
As a result, and for the time being, all befriending will take place via telephone (or internet platforms whether possible) and all volunteer meetings will be held online. We know that this may have a negative impact on clients and volunteers, but pleased be assured that WNB will continue to operate and will offer support as/when it can, in line with these new restrictions.
All staff will be working from home, but the office phone will continue to be manned, Monday to Friday (9:30am to 4:00pm). If you need any support, or simply wish to chat please ring: 01553 763500. Outside of these hours our answer phone will take up any messages, and someone will get back to you as soon as possible,
The situation will be reviewed in line with Government guidance on 2nd December and we will keep you informed.
