Planning for the future
Returning to normal after the pandemic
It’s fair to say that this past year has definitely been a tumultuous and uncertain year for Silver Birch and everyone else! We have had to make lots of changes and adapt our business as the year has gone on, to ensure everyone’s safety throughout this pandemic.
You will know that Silver Birch alongside many other organisations were hit particularly hard and had to close for extended periods throughout the pandemic to ensure the safety of our clients, staff and customers. This has been a prolonged period of uncertainty for the organisation however we are hopeful that there is now some light at the end of the tunnel and we are now planning how the next twelve months will pan out in the aftermath of the pandemic.
We have already begun reopening keys parts of the organisation including some clients services and our garden centre. There are of course lots of changes not only to our work environment but also the ways we work to ensure we are following the appropriate guidance in navigating through this stage the pandemic safely.
With the roll out of the vaccine programme we are hopeful that we can start a slow gradual return to a more normal service and have started welcoming our clients back to the service, albeit on a much reduced capacity. This has worked very well and our aim is to have most clients and staff back at the service by the end of June 2021.
