COVID-19

Students:

The City Lions Team have been closely monitoring the situation with the COVID 19 virus over the last few weeks with the hope to keep our events running. However, as a result of the latest government guidance it is with regret that we will need to postpone all our upcoming programmes and work experience opportunities currently scheduled until May 2020.

This includes our Easter Holiday Programme, LOCKDOWN Theatre event and scheduled work experience opportunities. Our team will be in contact with anyone directly affected by these changes.

Whilst this is disappointing your safety is our primary concern. We will be continuing to send out our newsletters with information and other opportunities to keep your creative minds busy at home!

We understand these are challenging times and if there is anything the City Lions Team can do to support please get in contact.

 

Parents:

It’s crucial that in times like this everyone pulls together – as a community, as councils working together, and with business and our other partners. We’ve already had a number of enquiries from local people and groups asking how they can help their neighbour or in their communities. We are as always humbled by the amazing community spirit of Westminster’s residents. 

In the first instance if you need help or you know of anyone who needs help as a result of COVID-19, please send us the details.

If you are concerned about anyone who you think requires social care and support, please phone 020 7641 1444 or 020 7641 1175 or email adultsocialcare@westminster.gov.uk
