Dandelion Time’s Response to COVID-19  

Please be assured that we are taking the UK Coronavirus situation very seriously and are regularly reviewing the impact on our services. We will heed current Public Health England (PHE) and Government advice and take measures as needed to protect the best interests of our families, supporters, volunteers and staff.

We will endeavour to keep everyone updated as the situation evolves on our website and social media.  If you have any queries please continue to email info@dandeliontime.org.uk or call 01622 814001

Family Work

Dandelion Time recognises the huge challenges many families are facing as a result of the current coronavirus pandemic. There will be much hardship for families resulting from a situation that effects work arrangements, school attendance and family concerns.  As a result of school closures  some children will now be losing support from friends and teachers as well. We want to reassure referring agencies, and families that we are here for them and are working hard on adapting our approach to continue to offer an  effective service over the forthcoming period of uncertainty. We will be working with schools and the local community to ensure we can offer appropriate support for families with health and safety concerns remaining paramount.

We are doing everything we can to minimise the impact and reduce the spread of COVID-19 across all our sites and will continue to do so. Our Children & families are and will remain our focus and we will be working hard to ensure that we can continue to support them in the best possible way..

Staff & Volunteers

The health and wellbeing of our staff and volunteers is at the forefront of our minds during the current situation surrounding Covid-19.  As an organisation we are putting in various measures to ensure the safety of our staff and volunteers

Fundraising & Events

We have decided to postpone our Our Open Morning on Friday March 20th, Volunteer and Staff Party on 24th March and our Quiz Night  on 3rd April.

The Brighton Marathon has been postponed until 20th September. We will be contacting our runners individually to see how we can best support our runners at this time.

This situation will have a big impact on our fundraising income. If you are in a position to make a donation, however big or small, it would help us transform the lives of our vulnerable children and families.
