V1PL Service Update (December 2020)
On Saturday 19 December the First Minister outlined new legal restrictions to manage the COVID pandemic in Scotland. The guidance recommends that services such as Veterans First Point continue to support people using digital technology, rather than recommencing face to face meetings. Therefore until we receive new guidance V1PL staff will be working remotely wherever possible and veterans will not be able to attend the centre. This is to reduce the amount of travel, reduce contact with others and therefore reduce the spread of infection. We understand that these continued restrictions are difficult for all of us, but please be assured that all our team remain available to provide telephone support in the usual way 0131 220 9920. We are open working days, but closed on the public holidays. Out of hours support is available from our colleagues at both Samaritans and Breathing Space.
Despite these challenging times everyone at V1PL would like to wish you the very best for the Christmas and new year period and hope to meet with you again, in person later in 2021
