Community Help Service is committed to the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and clients. During the current coronavirus situation, we have put in place guidelines which protect our community whilst reducing the impact on our services. This includes reducing our in-office staff and using video conferencing for our meetings and training.
1) Clients must wear a mask at all times whilst visiting the Centre unless explicitly stated by their therapist. They must also sanitise their hands upon entry.
2) Clients should arrive as close to their appointment time as possible and will be greeted at the door by their therapist. The waiting room is not in use.
3) Do not attend your appointment if you develop flu symptoms or respiratory complaints.
4) It is important that should you experience any COVID symptoms or test positive following a visit to our Centre, you notify CHS in writing, especially if your visit occurred within the 2 days prior to your symptoms appearing, so that appropriate action can be taken promptly.
On Thursday December 5 Jonathan Brenton, the British Ambassador to Belgium, presented a cheque for €7000 to the Community Help Service (CHS). The presentation took place at the annual Christmas Cocktail hosted by the British Chamber & Brussels British Community Association (BBCA) at the British Residence in Brussels.
The cheque was received on behalf of CHS by Rex Parker, chairman of the CHS board. The cheque funding was provided by the Duchess of Richmond’s Ball (DORB) and the BBCA.
Rex expressed CHS’s great appreciation to these two organisations for their continued support of CHS. “Without this help”, he noted, “there would be a substantial gap in our finances. We look forward to continued cooperation in future years.”
