Covid-19 & Mental Health – 730 px

We are able to go and pick up shopping for people in need that are living in Gleadless Valley/Low Edges, Batemoor and Jordanthorpe. This is a service that we are offering to those who are unable to leave the house due self-isolating for health/age reasons and are alone or don’t have others to rely on. If you feel you would benefit from this service or you know someone who might (eg, you live away from a loved one and are concerned about how they’re managing etc) please phone
Email or

Most of the services we currently offer are now moving to phone calls. No face-to-face contact unless otherwise stated.

We are reminding everyone that they don’t need to use PC’s to job search during this current situation and the DWP have advised that clients will not receive sanctions.

Newfield Green Library is now closed to the public. If you have any outstanding books do not worry, these fees will be waived. Groups in the Library have been suspended until further notice.

Youth groups are now closed until further notice.

Our link workers are doing what they can, contacting the surgeries and ringing patients etc.

If you have an appointment with any of our staff members, they will contact you by phone.

We will update the REACH website and Social Media Accounts when we have further information.
