The safety and wellbeing of our clients, staff and visitors at Headway Suffolk is our top priority and we will take all necessary precautions to ensure their continued welfare.

We are actively monitoring the situation with regards to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and following the guidelines set out by Public Health England. We will keep all our services running for as long as the government permits.

Visiting hubs

If you have been to an area that has been directly affected by the coronavirus, or you are showing symptoms associated with the virus (fever, cough, shortness of breath), we ask that you DO NOT VISIT us and immediately contact NHS 111 for advice.

We also ask that anyone with symptoms of a cold, including clients, staff and visitors, that you DO NOT VISIT us as you will not be permitted to enter.

All those that do enter must abide by our infection control measures and frequently wash their hands. They must use hand sanitizers in reception or wash their hands immediately on entering the hubs.

We wish to reassure that we are taking all possible steps to minimise the risk of contagion and to protect the welfare of all our clients, staff and visitors.

We ask everyone at our hubs to carry out high standards of personal hygiene and follow advice by Public Health England to help prevent the spread of the virus, including:

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • Put used tissues in a sealed bag and then in the bin immediately
  • Wash your hands with soap and hot water regularly
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

We will provide updates as and when necessary by following government guidelines.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
