Coronavirus Update at SYDNI
SYDNI is taking advice from the current government guidance in regard to the coronavirus. We have made the decision yesterday to cancel all of our activities that happen on a weekly basis. The Café will also be closed. We will still be running the food co-op and are looking at ways that we can respond from a food perspective.
The board and I have not taken this decision lightly as we understand and treasure how much SYDNI’s services mean to you all. Taking into consideration the governments advice especially related to social distancing and nonessential travel we felt that we cannot maintain our open door as there are so many vulnerable people that use the centre and we have a duty to listen to the advice that has been given.
Although the Centre will be closed our staff team will be in regular contact with people – signposting, guidance or a simple chat. We are working with other local organisations to provide a service to local people and understand how other services are operating and encourage you strongly to show the world what enormous community spirit and love Sydenham is capable of.
We are on email and at the end of the phone and will update you regularly with new news as and when we have it. You are still able to access food bank vouchers here and at other local centres.
Regular updates about the situation can be found here
This will advise you on what you should do if you start to show symptoms.
Please look after each other and look out for those in your street that may be in need for whatever reason. Please do this safely though following the guidance given.
