We are continuing business as normal. This means we will aim to be at work and deliver our core business. Our staffing levels will change daily as some staff may need to look after sick dependants. Some staff will be working from home. If you have a meeting or appointment, please check with us before you leave, to see if the staff member is working on the day. If you are a group or SPACE associate and you need extra support at this time, please contact us.

Following the latest government advice, the Slough CVS office will be closed to visitors from today, 17.3.20. All Slough CVS training sessions have now been postponed until further notice.
