EPIC’s Phased Return to Work – Road Map to Recovery
We hope that this finds you and your family well.
Through our work we know that this has been a very worrying and uncertain time for children, young people, their families, carers and those supporting them.
In response to the Covid-19 crisis many services were adversely affected and face to face support was replaced with online support, which over the next number of weeks will be gradually phased out and normal operations will return.
In line with our return to normal operations and government guidelines, we would like to keep you informed on how our service will continue to respond to the needs of children and young people in care and with care experience in the coming months.
On this page you’ll find our ‘Road Map to Recovery’ and accompanying information that highlights the stages of our return to work and how this support will be provided.
Due to the nature of participation and group dynamics, our National Youth Council will continue remotely during this time.
EPIC has also set up a dedicated phone helpline which was launched on the of March 31st.
The helpline is specifically for children and young people in care and with care experience to provide them with direct access to an Advocacy Officer to support them with any queries or concerns that may arise for them during this time.
The line will be open 2 days a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-4 pm, please call 01 9631272
