Gerraint’s blog March 2020
As you can imagine, last month was a very quiet month compared to normal. I have been working from home since lockdown began. I have been having internal staff meetings through Microsoft Teams. In my opinion this has worked because we can display agendas, team meetings and presentations on screen without printing them off.
I have been sending emails to the Engage to Change project partners. I’ve been producing short video clips about my role and how I have been managing with self-isolation, and these have been posted on the project’s social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
I have been having 4 weekly phone calls with the project Ambassadors who I line manage to see how they are managing with self isolation.
Individuals with learning disabilities have also been making contact with me via Facebook messenger chats and messenger video calls. It’s good that I can help people to feel connected through these difficult times.
