Coronavirus  Update


Dear Participants, Volunteers, Carers and friends of ECHO

Our participants are the heart of ECHO and we have missed you all very much. I thank you for your support over what has been a very difficult 3 months, but at


last,  I am pleased to announce  that we have reviewed the situation and are planning to start delivering services again in the week beginning 27th July.

We plan to  take things slowly and are making sure that we have the right things in place to make our activities as safe as we can.  This means that:

  • We will be doing a phased return- so not everybody will be starting at the same time

  • We are for the moment, sticking to 2m social distancing and so we may not be able to have as many people on each day as we used to.

  • We will be in touch with everyone directly about when they can start back and what the project they attend will look like.  We are producing a booklet to help you know what to expect when you come back and how you can help us keep everyone healthy. You can go through this booklet with your support and we will go through it again with you on your first day.

If you have any questions please do get in contact with us.

ECHO can’t wait to see you all again and show you what we have been doing whilst you have been away.


Mike Cook,

Chief Officer,
