A Happy New Year to you all.
Following the Governments Lockdown requirement, Trustees and Managers have discussed what Enable Ability can continue to provide in the coming months. Most of our services and activities have been suspended as it would not be safe for our families or staff to provide them at this time. So, play schemes, teenage and youth projects, advocacy and most of the befriending support has been suspended. We are in discussion with Portsmouth City Council about the provision of a half term play scheme, and we will update you as soon as possible. Inter Activ, based at Landport Community Centre continues to support some of our participants with most activity offered remotely. We are providing food parcels to a number of local individuals and families in high need, and are in discussion with other local organisations about setting up a hot meals service.
I know this is hugely frustrating for families, staff and volunteers, but the health and safety of all is our prime consideration. In the meantime, please stay safe, protect the most vulnerable and remember that the vaccination programme has begun so hopefully by the Spring we can get back to some kind of normality. I will continue to update you as things evolve.
Chair of Trustees
