We continue to be fully operational and open for business even if working remotely. Our staff are working hard to ensure we provide the same excellent first class service to our clients. The safety of our clients and staff is our number one priority and meetings should therefore take place by phone, email or via Video/Zoom call. Essential urgent meetings can be arranged in advance (via telephone or email) at our Covid safe offices if absolutely necessary, and socially distanced home visits can be organised for the elderly again where necessary and essential.
