As we move into 2022 COVID-19 is sadly still very much at large, and we continue to keep the safeguarding of the people we support as our number one priority. We ask for your understanding and patience as we continue to carefully follow the most up-to-date advice, procedures and guidelines from the government and ultimately make decisions based on our knowledge of those we care for and the best ways to keep them safe.
We are hugely grateful for the tremendous support from the whole Aspens family in helping to keep those we care for and our carers safe during these challenging and unprecedented times.
We will keep you updated on any changes via this web page and our social media pages.
