Supporting those who need it most

BCM Statement/Update

BCM Statement/Update

These are uncertain times for everyone.

Here at Belfast Central Mission (BCM) we are acutely aware of the concerns that face all our staff, volunteers and service users, and of course the wider community, in light of the Corona Virus and Covid-19 outbreak.

As a service provider for younger and older people throughout your communities, we are doing all that we can to protect them and the vital services that we provide to vulnerable people across Northern Ireland.

While there are no easy solutions in this unprecedented situation, we are basing our contingency plans on the latest information as it comes through and are closely monitoring the guidance from the government and health authorities and will adapt our plans accordingly.

As the days and weeks go on there will be a requirement for some to self-isolate as we all need to work together to try to limit the spread and keep each other and those important to us safe.

We will all pull together to support each other through this difficult time and we will continue to provide help for those who need it across Northern Ireland.   

Thank you.
