Covid-19 response

Covid-19 latest update:

We returned to Rowan on 6 April to provide some small group workshops, and have been doing our best to return to normal since then. We are continuing to provide Zoom workshops on socials, art at home activity packs and we remain in contact with any student who are not able to return to our studios yet.

To find out what’s on Zoom this week, go to Student Activites.

In response to Covid-19 Rowan had to stop our normal workshops in 2020, but were determined to stay connected with our students, their families, our volunteers and our community.

We quickly adapted our services to run a range of creative workshops, Makaton sessions and socials online via Zoom. In addition to this, we provided creative activity packs for our students to do at home and offer some one-to-one and small group sessions in person, in line with Covid-19 guidance. 

We also launched our forest school, Rowan Rangers, in response to the fact that outside projects were considered safer during Covid-19. This provided choice and creative opportunities for students who cannot currently return to Rowan.

Another part of our offering has been regular welfare calls, holistic support and signposting to all our students, families and volunteers.

We shall continue to follow Covid-19 guidance and will continue to provide music, drama and craft workshops on Zoom, deliver activity packs to do at home and stay connected via welfare calls alongside our normal activities.

For more general guidance regarding Covid-19, including easy read documents, please have a look at Mencap’s website.
