Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We continue to address the ongoing threat of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, in line with Government advice.

We are committed to protecting people we support and the teams that care for them during this time and have developed contingency plans to ensure the support we provide isn’t compromised, even during lockdown circumstances.

To ensure that we are able to react quickly to any changes in Government guidance or local circumstances, our senior leadership teams are meeting several times a week. All Leaf staff are being provided with a comprehensive briefing at least once a week. This brief summarises the latest advice from Government and other official sources, and clearly sets out the actions that staff should take as a result.

We are continually monitoring and adapting our plans in line with guidance from the Government and Public Health England.

If you need more details 

  • If you are someone we support, please speak to your local registered manager or relationship manager
  • If you are someone closely connected to someone we support, please contact your registered manager who will be up to date through our staff briefings.
  • If you are a candidate who has applied or going through the recruitment process, please contact the recruitment specialist for your area. Contact details can be found here.
  • For all other contacts, please get in touch with the person you usually deal with here at Leaf.

Visiting homes

Following the announcement of a national lockdown in England, from Thursday 5th November we will be following the guidance set out by the government around households mixing. We are awaiting the publication of specific guidance for visiting homes during this period, which the Government have said will be published before the start of the new National Restrictions.

Where the people we support have the capacity to make decisions around visitors themselves, we will support them to understand the new rules in relation to this.

If you have any queries around visiting, please get in touch in the usual way (i.e. directly with the person supported, or through the staff support team).
