Age Concern Kathy Mapes Day Centre, Chelmsford
JANUARY 2021 UPDATE
As we enter another difficult and challenging period with lockdown Hearing Help Essex is committed to ensuring that we keep our clients, volunteers and staff as safe as possible throughout the resurgence of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Over 500 individuals access our face to face services each month, and many of our Clients are considered to be in a vulnerable group identified by the World Health Organisation. Therefore, we are once again, following Government guidelines having to take the difficult decision to cancel our drop-in sessions, home visits, and All Ears events until further notice.
Please be reassured that we continue to closely monitor the Public Health authorities guidance to ensure that we keep our service users, volunteers, and staff safe.
We are pleased to say that we are able to operate a covid-safe service for NHS Hearing Aid Cleaning and Re-tubing currently at five venues across the County. These are strictly by appointment only and we cannot accept any ‘walk-in’ service users. The venue locations are:
