DGHE Update - Posted on 29/09/2021

Dear students,

I would like to welcome you all back and reassure you that we have planned for the best possible start, and being part of the DGHE community means we’re here for you when you need us.

Do staff and students need to wear a mask?

All staff and students are required to wear masks in shared/ common areas in the HE areas. This includes DGC staff & students entering or passing through. 

Staff are not required to wear masks while delivering lessons however, students will. In situations where they are in close proximity to students, then staff will be required to wear masks.

Who do I contact if I have questions?

The Head of Centre will be acting as the lead for all Covid enquiries and actions.

All staff and students must contact covid@dghe.ac.uk when ill; self-isolating; displaying symptoms, or have general enquiries. This will be monitored throughout the day by the Head of Centre and key staff.

Protect. Respect. Be Kind.

We enter Autumn Term at a point where people have many different viewpoints, concerns and expectations about how we respond to Covid-19. Here at DGHE, we are a respectful community and everyone needs to do their bit to keep everyone safe, especially those most vulnerable. As part of our community, we ask that you:

  • Get tested regularly

Test yourself twice per week, three days apart.

  • Where and how can I get a rapid lateral flow COVID-19 test?

Staff and students who are not displaying symptoms of COVID-19 can order rapid lateral flow testing kits from the NHS website.

Anyone with coronavirus symptoms should request a PCR test for yourself or a member of your household from the UK government Covid-19 website or by calling 119. A test should be booked as soon as symptoms begin.

  • Wear a face covering

Unless exempt, we will require that you wear face coverings in teaching sessions, to protect yourselves and others, as well as in busy indoor spaces and while moving around the building. Keep an eye out for signage about when and where we recommend wearing them.

  • Get vaccinated

Vaccination is by far the most important step you can take to protect yourselves and others, and help DGHE maintain its full programme of in-person activities. So we strongly encourage you to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible.

Support at DGHE

There are lots of people here to help and support you in whatever way you need, wherever you currently are. Should you need to self-isolate, let us know via covid@dghe.ac.uk.

During your time at DGHE, we provide free access to the Togetherall website and the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust platform. These are online wellbeing community services, and you can also call on your College and our Advice and Wellbeing Service (AWS). We can support you whether you’re on or off-campus, but above all, it’s important to remember that you’re never alone.

I very much hope you enjoy the start of term and all there is to follow.

Best wishes from myself and everyone at DGHE!

Hi all,

As we prepare for the new year some of you may have been abroad during our online provision as many of our students have. The following email will be sent to our students as well but equally applies to you.

If you have received a first dose of COVID-19 vaccine overseas that is also available in the UK, you should receive the same vaccine for your second dose. If the vaccine you have received for your first dose is not available in the UK, the most similar alternative should be offered as per the

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-programme-guidance-for-healthcare-practitioners (see sections on vaccine interchangeability guidance).

It is important that you contact a GP to ensure you receive an appropriate vaccine for your second dose.

I am really looking forward to seeing you all soon.

DGHE Update - Posted on 17/05/2021

Hello all,

 As I have already communicated to you, we are now planning for a full return to the 32-35 Jewry St. building in September, 2021. Though the Government has not yet finalised its regulations that far ahead, I have little doubt that there will be some protocols that we will have to follow. Once these have been released, we will of course be informing you. Rest assured though that DGHE will continue to keep the health and safety of its students and staff at the top of its agenda.

To further support this return I wanted to provide guidance to those of you who will be returning to the UK. The following is based on the Government’s most recent guidance and includes links to further information. It is important that you allow yourselves ample time to plan and make the necessary arrangements for your return.


Preparing to return to the UK and your studies at DGHE:

Before you enter the UK you must:


For further information, please go to this link



Upon arrival in the UK you will need to check in at border control

You must wear a face covering at the airport, port or station you’re arriving into and follow social distancing rules.

You’ll need to show:

  • your passport or identity card
  • your proof of a negative coronavirus (COVID-19) test
  • your passenger locator form


For further information, please go to this link



In the meantime, I hope that you will enjoy the summer safely and we look forward to seeing you in the new academic year. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact a member of our staff via our special return to college information email address at Return2UK@dghe.ac.uk





DGHE Update - Posted on 17/05/2021

Dear students,

As you are aware, in April the Government announced that all students on non-practical courses would be able to return to in-person teaching as per Step 3 of its Covid Roadmap, where restrictions will be eased further.

As of May 17th there will no longer be any restrictions on the in-person teaching of students on non-practical courses. This however will NOT apply to DGHE as we will continue to deliver our online provision until September 2021. Our reason for this is that many of you have other obligations such as work and family and we do not expect you to change your current schedules so quickly. This return to a more ‘normal’ setting will require time and careful planning. We do however, suggest that you begin that planning. Some things you should consider are:

  • Changes to your daily routine will now need to include your timetables for classes and the time that will be required for you to travel to college, attend classes and then return home/ work.
  • You may need time to communicate to your employer in case any changes need to be made to your work schedule or number of hours you can work because of the above changes to your daily routine.
  • Some of you may have to make arrangements for childcare or some of you may have other care responsibilities.

You are not alone in making these decisions. We strongly encourage students to come forward if they require support or guidance. The College has support services that can be accessed through our Moodle home page at https://moodle.ac.uk.

There is also Student Space, which is a dedicated platform for students, funded by the Government. Support is available via text, phone, email or webchat for issues including money, mental health, study, housing, relationships and more. Click on the links below or visit the Student Space website for more information.

Also, as there are currently fewer opportunities to gain work experience (fewer internships, placements, part time jobs), and participate in extra-curricular activities, experiences that traditionally help students develop employability skills. The Government has developed the Graduate Employment and Skills Guide, which signposts graduates to public, private and voluntary sector opportunities, to help them build employability skills and gain work experience or enter the labour market. The Guide also links to further study options and resources on graduate mental health and wellbeing.

When we do return to the Jewry Street building there will be rules in place to ensure the safety of our students and staff. As testing may still be a requirement in the Autumn you may need to have to test at home before coming to College but we will let you know of any plans and details closer to the date. If required at the time of return to face to face teaching in September, DGHE will provide a list of test site facilities (libraries, lecture halls, large halls of residence etc.) to make it even easier for students and staff to access regular tests and information.

NOTE: Please also refer to the letter from the Minister of Universities for more information here.

I would like to take this time to praise all of you for you strength and dedication during these difficult times. I hope that you and your loved ones are well and continue to stand with you through these difficult times.


Best Wishes,

Paul Talan

Head of Centre


DGHE Update - Posted on 16/04/2021

Hello everyone,

As you may be aware, the Government will soon be making an announcement regarding STEP 3 of its Roadmap out of lockdown.

To reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission we will be working carefully towards our return to the Jewry Street building. Some colleges and universities are planning to return Monday 17 May however, we do not plan to return to face-to-face teaching until September 2021. This is to reduce any further interruptions to our delivery and students’ studies until then, students should stay where they are and continue to study online in order to help reduce transmission of Covid-19.

Staff however will be making a staggered return at an earlier date, which has yet to be decided. It certainly will not be until at least the end of May so that we can ensure all precautions are carefully considered and in place.

If students do feel the need to return earlier or need any support, let your tutors know who can then discuss possible solutions with your programme manager and myself, so that we can ensure the safest possible options for all concerned. We must carefully map out any Services such as access to student support, the library, PCs and other resources.

At this time, anyone wishing to return to the building before September 2021 will be required to take three tests beforehand (3-4 days apart). They will then be required to test twice a week on an ongoing basis to continue accessing the building.

If anyone has a positive LFD test result, they should self-isolate immediately and take a follow-up polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test as soon as possible. If a student or staff member takes a PCR test within 2 days of the LFD test and receives a negative result, they and their household can stop self-isolating. Further details on testing will be available at a future date.

Here you will find a letter from Michelle Donelan MP (Minister of State for Universities ) which provides further details and information. We will continue to keep you informed with any updates as they become available. In the meantime please continue to be safe.

Paul Talan
Head of Centre


DGHE Update - Posted on 15/03/2021

Given the recent Government guidance and I am sure your own curiosities about what the future holds for us I thought I would give you an update.

The DGHE Management Team has met to discuss our plans for a return to face to face teaching.

After careful consideration we have concluded that we will NOT be returning to face to face learning during the remainder of this academic year but instead aim for the start of the next academic year of 2021-22 in September. Further information will be available to you following the Government’s update after the Easter Holidays. 

The College will also be making plans to support its students on preparing themselves for the changes they will face in face to face teaching such as (re)adjusting to Life-Work- Studies balance where students are working, have families or obligations of care and may find it difficult to make arrangements for this return.

Finally, with the Easter Holidays soon approaching some students (and their families) may experience further challenges such as:

  • what to do if you’re feeling unsafe where you live, or if you’re worried about someone else
  • paying your bills, rent, or mortgage
  • getting food
  • being made redundant or unemployed, or not having any work
  • what to do if you’re worried about going in to work
  • having somewhere to live
  • mental health and wellbeing, including information for children

If you wish, we may be of assistance through our Advice and Wellbeing Services by clicking on this link: https://www.picktime.com/dgheadviceandwellbeingservices

You can also find support through the Government through this link: https://www.gov.uk/find-coronavirus-support/s/need-help-with


If students are travelling home, they should follow the Coronavirus (COVID-19): safer travel guidance for passengers. HE Providers should also communicate travel guidance to all students, including how to help control coronavirus by: 

  • wearing a face covering unless exempt
  • keeping their distance from people from other households when they travel, where possible
  • washing or sanitising their hands regularly
  • avoiding the busiest routes, as well as busy times like the rush hour
  • downloading the NHS COVID-19 app before they travel, if possible, and checking in where they see official NHS COVID-19 QR code posters

Students are reminded that should they be travelling home by public transport that, in line with the Coronavirus (COVID-19): safer travel guidance for passengers, they should book ahead wherever possible.

I hope that this message find you and yours safe and happy.

Head of Centre


DGHE Update - Posted on 01/03/2021

As you know the PM made a statement to Parliament this past Monday, February 22nd, outlining the Government’s Roadmap for reopening England in its 4 Step Plan. The plan stated that on March 8th Schools, Further Education and Practical courses in Higher Education would return.

DGHE will NOT be returning to face-to-face teaching then.

The Management Team will be holding an extraordinary meeting on March 11th to begin making plans for a gradual return to the building but we do not plan on returning until the Summer Term. This planning will be made such that your health and safety, as well as the quality of your education, continues to be our priority. The Government will review the options for the timing of their return by the end of the Easter holidays. This review will take account of the latest data and will be a key part of the wider roadmap steps.   We will continue to keep you informed about this progress.

In the meantime please continue staying safe and observing social distancing. 

Paul Talan
Head of Centre

DGHE Update - Posted on 01/02/2021

You may be aware of the Prime Minister’s announcement that the current lockdown in England will be kept in place until March thus taking us beyond the previous plans for possible returns in mid-February.

We will keep you informed about further guidance and our own plans to ensure the safety of both our students and staff so that we can begin returning to aspects of your education which might include group work and face-to-face engagement.

In the meantime, please follow government guidance as closely as possible, avoiding any unnecessary travel and observing social distancing.

Information can be found on the NHS website at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/


DGHE Update - Posted on 05/01/2021

First of all Happy New Year to each and every one of you. Last year was difficult and as has been apparent, we still have some ways to go for 2021. Remember though that we do this together as a community. DGHE has support available for those who need it.

Last night the prime minister announced a third national lockdown in England. This means that new regulations discussed in parliament today, and subject to a vote tomorrow with the expectation that these new regulations will remain in place until the middle of February.

Or the moment, all DGHE teaching will remain online until mid-February. In turn, the staff is asked to work from home unless otherwise arranged.

What do you need to do?

The new measures will apply across the whole of England and no exception will be made for those who have been vaccinated. The main changes include:

Everyone will be asked to immediately stay at home and only leave for the following specific reasons:

  • To go to work or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home – this includes key workers.
  • To shop for food and/or medicine for yourself or a vulnerable person.
  • To provide care or help to a vulnerable person.
  • To seek medical care or an appointment or avoid injury, illness, or risk of harm, including domestic abuse.
  • To meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one.
  • To attend education or childcare if you are eligible

If you’re worried

If at any stage over the next few days, you or someone you live with gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, use the online 111 coronavirus service https://111.nhs.uk/COVID-19. Only call 111 if you cannot get help online. In a medical emergency call 999.

Call 111 if you’re worried about a baby or child. Call 999 if the baby or child seems very unwell, is getting worse, or you think there’s something seriously wrong.


DGHE Update - Posted on 23/09/2020

Due to Coronavirus COVID-19, DGHE has adapted in a number of ways. The wellbeing and learning of our students remains our priority and to ensure that are able to follow the Government advice on social distancing and staying safe.

The College has conducted a comprehensive risk assessment and we now have a policy guidance resulting from that exercise. https://www.dghe.ac.uk/david-game-higher-education-corona-virus-advice-guidance   

We are extremely proud of all our staff and current students, who are adapting to these news ways of working and learning and I would like to thank you for your support.

While the DGHE campus on Jewry St may be closed, we have been working hard in preparing to deliver a robust experience for you this academic year through online and virtual means. We will be continuing to deliver DGHE programmes in this manner for the Autumn term (Sep-Dec 2020). Our approach to delivering programmes will combine online educational materials and interaction online with (online) classroom methods.

However, we do expect to offer some workshops and seminar classes in the building, but only if it is safe to do so. The Prime Minister’s message last night was that schools, colleges and universities will carry on with their planned delivery. This includes social distances; staggered rotas for staff in the building with minimum numbers; only students with timetabled classes or appointments will be allowed access to the HE centre; all individual entering the building will be subject to a quick temperature test and will then be required to wear masks in public spaces such as the canteen hallways and stairwells. Those few classes that we have scheduled will continue as planned until other changes come into effect.

Lesson timetables have been prepared which will outline which classes will be taking in college, when and where these will take place and who will be delivering them. There will only be a minimum planned for delivery in the college and not all courses will have these. If you are uncomfortable about coming into the college then please contact your us to discuss and we will see if other arrangements can be made.

For General, Course and Application enquiries please call: 020 3220 0347

You can also email us at:



We also anticipate providing some other services on-campus such as admissions, welfare support and library services and access to the computer facilities for students experiencing issues of access to or requiring additional support digitally. This is an evolving situation and we will continue to follow government guidance so that we can monitor and respond to you accordingly.

If you have any concerns about your health the NHS has some comprehensive advice on what to do if you feel unwell and what to do on their website. If you feel unwell and are displaying COVID-symptoms you should get a test – call 119.

I hope you are all keeping well and remaining positive in these difficult times.

Head of Centre


DGHE Update - Posted on 10/08/2020

Hello all,

The last half of 2019-20 was without a doubt a difficult and trying time for all of us. I would like to praise each and every one of you for your perseverance during this time. Your efforts have been remarkable and I am very proud of what has been accomplished.

We will of course continue to work towards making your future experience at DGHE both safe and rewarding for 2020-21 and ensure that you are supported in every way possible. I will provide a full account of these efforts for you in early September before your return.

Will I be expected to come into campuses in September for the start of my course?

Our Curriculum and Service teams are working together to ensure that we can implement the safest and most effective method for delivering courses and student support services. For the start of year, the majority of our courses will be delivered solely online. There will be a limited number of courses which will adopt a blended approach to teaching and learning, with some online delivery, and some limited face-to-face teaching and support being available when and where necessary. However, students on those courses will be contacted with more information soon and no one should come to campus unless instructed to do so.

Health and Safety procedures are being put in place to enable safe social distancing at all times. Guidance is also being developed to promote safe behaviours when on campus. This is being developed in line with public health guidance and will include information on hand sanitising on entrance and exit; maintaining social distancing throughout the building; regular hand washing whilst on campus; and procedures for dealing with suspected cases on campus. This guidance will be sent to you prior to the start of your course.

All students and staff are also encouraged to remember the UK Government's guidance, which you can read about HERE

Please be reassured we are continuously following government guidance and we will not welcome any students into the building until it is safe to do so. It is important that only students who are instructed to do so come on site.

DGHE Update - Posted on 02/07/2020

Policy Guidance on the reopening of David Game College Higher Education Centre (DGHE) and creating a COVID-19 secure workplace

This policy guidance is based on various risk assessments carried out at the College by the COVID-19 Risk Committee.  The main purpose and rationale of the policy guidance are to:

1.      Explain the main risks that exist for students, staff and visitors

2.      Outline the changes that will have been made to mitigate the principal risks

3.      Explain how the changes will be actioned and monitored

4.      Outline what measures will be in place to allow those who are vulnerable to study/work remotely

This policy guidance document has been critically reviewed by the College’s Governance Advisory  Committee and approved for publication. It has assimilated advice from various sources, including government websites, consultancy advice, DfE, Office for Students, Universities UK, Teaching Union guidance and advice from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

The College is totally committed to providing a safe and secure environment for students, staff and visitors. Social distancing, hygiene measures, temperature checks, and classroom/corridor management are at the heart of the policy guidance. The policy will be subject to modification depending on the prevailing scientific and government advice. It is understood that this policy guidance is subject to constant update. The COVID-19 Risk Committee will be responsible for updating the policy every two weeks from the date of official publication.

The College intends to re-open the building from starting from 14th September, which is when students will be expected to start their studies.

DGHE aims to open a limited range of facilities from 28th September 2020 and will also be publishing additional guidance on what services will be delivered online and what will be on-campus.

Note: Term dates and teaching arrangements will vary according to department.  You will be notified as to when classes specific to your department will start.

Please find out more about the reopening of DGHE here.


DGHE Update - Posted on 19/06/2020


DGHE is continually working towards ensuring that our current learners, staff and those interested in studying with us are kept informed and supported during these difficult times.

The College as a whole expects to be able to offer a wide range of subjects/courses in place from the second week of September 2020, but there may be some restrictions in accessing some elements of the curriculum until it is safe to do so.  FE provision will be first to launch with higher education courses commencing late September/early October.

The College aims to offer remote learning for those who, for whatever reason, are unable to travel in to our City location. A wide range of measures have been considered and our timetable may become more flexible in order to accommodate student and staff altered travel plans.

We will all have to adapt to a new way of working and we would very much value your support and encouragement to help us get the message about social distancing and following our new rules.  We will be working closely with our partners and advisers to ensure compliance as well as following ongoing guidance by the Office for Students (OfS).  Depending on the prevailing scientific advice, some elements of our policies and protocols may be up or down-graded as required.

By the end of June a full outline will be made available that will detail our measures and strategies for re-opening as well as an FAQ document. 

Please be assured that the College and its senior leadership team and governance members take the issue of COVID-19 extremely seriously and we will be following government advice to ensure that as far as possible the College is a safe environment for your child to enjoy continuing education.

Supporting DGHE Students during the Period Affected by Covid-19

What Support Can I Expect?

DGHE is working extremely hard to put in place extra resources and support so all our students can continue to study and participate in assessments successfully during this period.

DGHE has a ‘safety net’ process to offer support and reasonable adjustments to enable all students experiencing difficulties related to Covid-19 to continue their studies with confidence.

  • DGHE students have been given allowances via our awarding bodies in how they will be assessed based. These will be outlined to students by their teachers
  • Students may also discuss the practicalities of extensions, deferring modules/assessments and interruption of study with staff at any point to ensure that they understand their options in full.

DGHE has been working very hard to ensure that our student support offer continues to develop with your needs in mind. Students will have access to a range of support services, including wellbeing and disability support both on campus or online as required.

Who can I get in touch with if I am feeling worried?

Remember that DGHE operates a system where all students can receive additional support through drop-in sessions and workshops supported aimed at supporting students with their course work and development. Our Welfare Services Team is also here to help.

We are already making plans for September 2020.

At present it seems quite likely that DGHE will have to continue with the bulk of its academic delivery online, which may well have to continue to until December 2020 (and maybe beyond).

However, we also anticipate that we will be able to conduct some classes or support services on site – i.e. back in the building. For example, you may have access to the library, computing facilities and art studios – and possibly some seminar/tutorial sessions. But if this is the case we would need to be confident that it was safe to do so. Part of this planning will include a booking system which takes some of these factors into account as well as ensuring a safe number of students accessing the building at any given time.

Working towards a Safer Future during your studies

We have completed a risk assessment and are putting a range of measures in place in order to ensure a low risk working environment for all students and staff returning or continuing to work during the current Coronavirus pandemic.

Governance & Leadership:

  • Establishment of a Coronavirus governance and leadership group
  • Development of a comprehensive plan and risk assessment at institutional level which is approved by the governing body
  • Maintaining regular communications with external key contacts and stakeholders

 Learners and Learning:

  • Providing clarity on well-being / pastoral support mechanisms (online) and identify extra resources where necessary
  • Working with disadvantaged and/or vulnerable students, and learners with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) on a one-to-one basis to identify and provide additional support
  • Consider reasonable adjustments to assessment activities where necessary
  • Consider reasonable adjustments to contact time allocation and/or course duration

Social distancing:

  • Limited number of teaching hours in the College. The majority of learning in the early part of the term will be online and our staff are developing new approaches which we are confident will meet with your approval
  • Classes in college limited to one day only to avoid unnecessary travel on public transport
  • Start/end times of classes scheduled to avoid travel at peak times
  • A spread of morning and afternoon classes so not everyone are in at the same time
  • Fewer students in a classroom at any one time (i.e. numbers to enable 2m distance to be maintained)
  • Staggered break-times to avoid overcrowding in corridors
  • One-way system around the college to avoid close contact in corridors
  • Allowing only one person only in the lift at a time
  • Sneeze guard acrylic screens installed at Reception desks and other service points
  • Workstation dividers installed between desks in staff rooms
  • Limiting the number of staff in the building at any one time
  • Visitors, contractors and deliveries to the building kept to a necessary minimum


  • More hand sanitiser dispenser units around the college
  • Easy access to hand washing facilities
  • Enhanced cleaning regime throughout the DGC building
  • Cleaning of all computer keyboards and main touch areas after every class
  • Enhanced daily cleaning regime within DGHE
  • Room doors left open in order to avoid the need to touch handles
  • Clear signage displayed around the college providing advice and guidance on how to stay safe
  • Updated training for staff who are first aiders
  • Students and staff encouraged to wear face coverings

Communication and Information:

  • Following Public Health England (PHE) and other relevant and official sources on a daily basis in order to keep informed of latest developments
  • Monitoring the well-being of students and staff working from home
  • Systems in place to ensure those working from home ‘stay connected’ with colleagues
  • Provision of information on how to self-isolate
  • Providing clear advice and guidance through posters around the college and via the DGHE VLE

If you have any questions about any of the above points please do not hesitate to contact us.

The Department for Education has launched a helpline to answer questions about coronavirus related to higher education where staff, students, parents, carers and partners can contact the helpline as follows:

Hope all you're doing well .
Today we had the first online class that I would like to give my feedback. Unfortunately the moment and circumstances are of great concern to everyone, but with all these changes, I am very happy because, in the midst of so much chaos, DG College and all of his team made major changes in record time to accommodate the needs of their students.

With the new arrangements, we can have the chance to receive education and wisdom, without exposing ourselves and our family members and, thus, in the future we can become great professionals telling the story of a difficult phase of our generation and how we were supported by organizations like David Game College.
Wishes everyone luck and a very near and brilliant future. keep safe

We are exploring a range of ways to assess work remotely in order to support students. It is likely that assessment criteria and final submissions will be modified in most cases so as not to affect your ability to progress or graduate. However, submissions will still be required from you.

You can help us by identifying ways you can maintain your learning and experience over the coming weeks - online with your friends and fellow students, and also with the academic staff from your course. You are a part of this process and we value your input.

Keeping up to date:

Students should regularly check their Moodle account and emails for updates and announcements. Attendance to online classes will be monitored in order to ensure regulatory compliance.

Video tutorials on using Zoom.


Student travel during this time.

Many students may plan to travel home. Before travelling, students should first review the advice from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.


Travel restrictions may prevent students from returning to at the start of next term. If students are unable to return to the UK due to the outbreak or choose to remain at home, they should email Admissions

Summer term start date (all students)

We hope we can recommence face-to-face as soon as possible but at this time we cannot yet confirm how and when we will deliver services, including teaching, during the summer term. We will make this decision during the spring break and let you know as soon as possible.

We all need to support one another – staff and students alike – as we work this out and make the changes which are required. We understand that this is a time of high anxiety for you, your friends, families and households. DGHE is committed to supporting its community through these unsettled times.

Stay well,
Paul Talan
Head of Centre.
