Lockdown: A Guide to Pure Services

Posted on the 11th January 2021

Here is a guide to the Pure services that we can, and are, continuing to deliver in Lockdown Three.

We assure all clients, parents, carers and partner organisations that all our services conform with Government Guidance. The safety of all is, as ever, our highest priority.

Our Services

Where possible and with the support of our commissioners and the local authority, we will continue to offer services to our most vulnerable clients and to the families of key workers and those in crisis.

This means that Pure Support services in Stockport, Rochdale and Oldham will remain open to clients who were accessing our service last year. However, we will only be accepting new clients in exceptional circumstances. Enquiries are still welcome.

Open Buildings, Projects and Services

The following Pure Support centres will remain open: Prospect House, Vernon Park, The Grey Horse, the Jonathan Burns Centre, The Boathouse, The Falcon Centre, Woodshack and the Creative Hub.

Our Cafes in Etherow Park , Vernon Park, Dunwood Park and The Boathouse in Alexandra Park, Oldham, will also all remain open, all offering takeaway service. (The Kitchen and The Windmill Cafe remain closed.)

Mental Health and Wellbeing Services The Mental Health Network (MHN) and Wellbeing and Independence Network (WIN) will continue to provide their important support services.

The following Education and Training services will continue to operate: our Supported Internships, Steps Towards Employment Programme (Step) and Personalised Education Programme (Pep).

Employment Services Our services on the GMCA Working Well contract continue, along with some of our Access to Work provision.
