ECHO takes the safety of participants, staff and volunteers very seriously. COVID is a virus which means we can not completely keep it out of our projects. We will do what we can to make our activities as safe as we can.

Government announcement

The Government made some general announcements about relaxing COVID rules and making most precautions something people can choose whether to do.

These changes do not apply to social care.

We are still required to keep in place all of the precautions below as we work with vulnerable people who may need extra protection.

What we do:


ECHO will follow the most up to date guidance and regularly meets with Herefordshire Council and other service providers to make sure we are doing the right things.

Not sure what you should be doing? Then give us a call and we can advise you.

Staying Open

ECHO are committed to staying open as long as we feel it is safe to do so. We know how important our services are to everyone, and so will only close activities if we have to.
