IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL MIDLAND MENCAP STAFF:
Following BCC’s decision to close all schools and day centres we recognise this does cause issues across our staff teams. Therefore, for tomorrow (Monday) these are our arrangements:
• We will attempt to operate our offices & hubs as normal, so if you are OFFICE BASED and it safe for you to do so please endeavor to attend for work. However, if it is not safe to drive, use public transport or walk to work please advise your line manager of alternative working arrangements or requests for emergency annual leave
• Office based staff can work from any of our sites at Alcester Road, The Enterprise Hub or The Walsall Hub
• Colleagues from Housing with Care & Support will be advised this afternoon of arrangements to ensure we fully them and support vulnerable citizens
• Non-housing care & Support staff can also volunteer to support colleagues in our care & support services who may have been in situ all weekend or short staffed as a consequence of the weather. If you feel you could go on emergency stand-by please e-mail Chris.Haines@midlandmencap.org.uk or David.Bird@midlandmencap.org.uk directly
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our care & support staff who have either stayed at work, walked miles to work or have been on-call to ensure all vulnerable citizens have been kept safe over this exceptionally challenging weekend. Outstanding commitment for which we’re very grateful.
Travel safely if you are able to do so and please ensure you advise your line manager of your whereabouts and arrangements for tomorrow
