Covid-19update on current day services

Although Covid-19 still prevents us from delivering our normal level of service to people with learning disabilities, we have now started to offer carefully controlled, socially distanced activities at our centres to enable people to stay safe, well and connected and to address risk of deteriorating physical and mental health.

Extra measures are in place to keep our clients, staff and volunteers well. All activities comply with latest government Covid-19 regulations and are monitored closely.

We continue to offer our innovative and popular alternative service including online socials and courses, telephone welfare calls, and delivery of activity and wellbeing packs. We are also supporting family carers through new online, telephone and face-to-face communication.

To find out more about current day services please contact Chantelle Welsher, Client Services Transformation Manager at or telephone 07834 578704

To find out more about our support for unpaid carers please contact Catherine Shatwell, Carers Matter Manager at or telephone 07715648691.

Reach Southwell is very much part of the local community. Situated in the very centre of the town, we are able to offer clients lots of opportunities and activities. Coming along to Reach Southwell gives the chance to get involved in local life and to feel connected to their community in an easy-to-access location.

As this is also our headquarters, we are firmly plugged in to Southwell life and that means that we can support our clients to get involved in local events. Reach Southwell clients have participated in the Lantern Walk, archaeological digs and other community events in recent years, and there is lots more to come.

At Reach Southwell we offer:

  • regular courses including Media Fun, Fun and Fitness, Art and Singing
  • women’s groups on Mondays and Fridays
  • men’s cookery on Wednesday evenings
  • weekly massage and reflexology therapy
  • one-to-one life skills sessions led by trained and experienced volunteers

We can also offer supported volunteering opportunities for clients who are preparing for their next steps towards independence and active citizenship.
