The UK is currently experiencing an unprecedented crisis in its attempts to limit the impact of the deadly virus, Covid-19. The crisis is affecting every community in the UK with some vulnerable groups being at additional risk.

  • At Young Foundations, we are playing our part in providing essential services to vulnerable groups of children and adults, whilst taking every precaution to limit the spread of the virus. Our dedicated staff teams are already going above and beyond normal expectations to meet the needs of the people we look after and educate.

    We are very proud of the efforts and sacrifices our staff team are making to rise above this extraordinary situation. Our services are also playing their part in keeping their local communities safe by temporarily limiting the number of contact points between us and others. This means a disruption to our normal way of doing things but it is being done with good spirits and to protect the most vulnerable in society.

  • This is a very dynamic situation with information changing rapidly. We will remain alert to the changes in government advice and we will review our best practice approaches on a daily basis.

    Our goal is to maintain our excellent service to the people we look after, keep them and our staff team safe whilst doing our bit to protect the most vulnerable in our communities.

    We feel very confident that we will achieve our goal because of the quality of the people who work here and their commitment to the people we look after.
