We will have enhanced cleaning and disinfection arrangements including wiping all tables with disinfectant after each workshop, regular touchpoints will be regularly disinfected and cleaned during the day.
A card machine is available for contactless payments.
There is a hand sanitising station when entering the art room, as well as hand sanitiser in the kitchen. There are also hand sanitizing stations throughout The Circle building. Clients, carers and staff will be asked to use hand sanitizer immediately when coming in and frequently thereafter.
We will have reduced persons in rooms at any one time. In the main arts and crafts room, a max of 8 individuals are allowed including external staff and Uppertunity staff. In the kitchen, a max of 4 individuals, with 2 remaining at the separate table.
Clients and external staff will be placed 2 meters apart from each other.
Clients and their carers will remain seated in the arts and crafts room. Uppertunity staff will collect any items needed.
Record of staff rota and client attendance will be kept for track and trace. The staff team at Uppertunity will be kept small and not all volunteers will return immediately.
Masks are not mandatory by clients, we understand that this can be a communication barrier and cause anxiety. Clients and external staff will be placed 2 meters apart from each other. Uppertunity staff may need to work in closer proximity when sharper/hot tools are being used. Masks will be worn by Uppertunity staff.
When walking in corridors, we ask that masks are worn, unless exempt.
