At this crisis time, we will continue to provide practical and emotional support for everyone affected by a mental health problem, further expanding our services to support people who may be isolated by Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Telephone support

  • Expanding our telephone befriending service to enable us to check in regularly with people self-isolating
  • Redeploying our office and other staff to support service users where needed throughout the organisation

Online facilitated groups and activities

  • Developed a new online hub programme to ensure people who regularly attend Jami hubs can still attend groups online via Zoom
  • Providing tablets and virtual technical support to those who are not connected to ensure they can participate

Provision of meals and door-step chats

  • Providing regular deliveries of hot meals made by Head Room Café staff
  • Delivery of essential provisions and door-step chats to ensure human contact is maintained with the most vulnerable

Outreach support

  • Supplying the community with regular information on caring for their own and loved ones’ mental health throughout this crisis.
