New online support services launched

In response to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 and the increased likelihood that many of our members may become more isolated than usual, we are moving many of our face to face support groups online and proving two new support services.

 

1. New weekly online clubs: 2 book clubs, a puzzle club and a crafting club. Everyone is welcome and it is free of charge to attend for EDS UK members.

The Zoom platform can be accessed free of charge from your phone, laptop, tablet or computer. Nikki Casey, our Senior Communities Manager, will be online on the Zoom platform every Monday for the foreseeable future from 1pm-3pm so that any members wishing to practice joining or to see what zoom is all about, can log in and see how it works and have a chat. To do this, simply click this link on Mondays between 1pm and 3pm. If you have any issues joining this meeting, please call 0208 736 5606 for immediate support between 1pm and 3pm.

 

If you have any general queries about these new services, please call the office on 0208 736 5604
