GTDT is still working hard to support you!

We know the last few weeks have been hard for everyone, from adjusting to new ways of shopping, to new ways of interacting with friends and family and new ways of working - every aspect of life has changed.

At GTDT we have had to significantly change the way we work and you can click here to find out how our services have changed, but we are continuing to work hard to support you, our community during these strange times.

Over the last week, we have been supporting people who are self-isolating for health reasons and families who need to socially distance by keeping in touch with them using a wide range of means (including social media, email and telephone).

Where more assistance is needed we have been helping out where possible by providing food and hygiene parcels to those most in need.

Additionally we have been working with partners to develop a range of provide distance learning courses for adults (it's a good time to learn a new skills, if you are isolating), helping provide printed work for those home-schooling, facilitating donations of items such as wheelchairs and generally helping out where needed around our community.

But we couldn't do any of this work without the incredible team of staff and volunteers that are keen to support everyone they can throughout the changes and challenges that are facing us all! Thank you!
