During the COVID-19 emergency and beyond, the safety and wellbeing of our employees, our supporters and our community remains at the heart of our decision making process here at Cynthia Spencer Hospice Charity.
In order to protect our employees and supporters, and ensure our charity can remain open, we have adapted our ways of working, and have been working with Peninsula to develop guidance for our employees, supporters and other stakeholders.
We continue to follow the latest official guidance and carefully monitor the COVID-19 situation.
Staying safe during COVID19
If anyone has concerns about our safe working arrangements, please raise it with the line manager if you are one of our employees or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our COVID-19 Risk Assessment
