Family Centre is to move to remote access to help care for its clients despite the Covid-19 crisis.

Martha Dismont, the charity’s executive director, said the change, which will start tomorrow, would protect staff as well as those who use its services while the crisis lasted.

Ms Dismont added: “Families will be able to receive therapeutic care by remote access.

“We have established specific protocols and procedures in best practices to support staff as they work remotely.

She said: “We believe this time will be particularly difficult for families needing therapeutic services.

“Staff are monitoring any urgent needs of families, and we are grateful to those donors who have already offered to provide assistance.”

Ms Dismont added: “The staff encourages the community to practice wisdom, safety, to be with family, and to hold faith that Bermuda will get through this trying time.”
