Our response to COVID-19
As an organisation, the safety and wellbeing of our customers and staff is our priority. We would like to reassure all of our customers that in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we are closely following advice from the Government and Public Health England, and are taking steps to help keep our customers and staff safe.
Currently, all of our services remain in operation and are being reviewed on a daily basis in response to Government advice. As part of our standard working process, our community care teams and Day Centres always maintain a high level of infection control, and given the heightened concern relating to the virus, all of our staff members are being briefed and given access to resources to keep themselves and our customers safe.
ECL Day Opportunities update
From Tuesday 24 March 2020, all customers of ECL Day Opportunities have been advised to stay at home in accordance with government guidance.
Day Services will only remain open for those customers who cannot remain at home safely – for example where someone is unable to meet basic needs or there is a risk of carer breakdown. On a case by case basis, these customers will be assessed to determine whether their needs can be met outside of the Day Service offer.
Thank you for your cooperation during this time.
In this uncertain time, we all need to be working together to ensure everyone is safe and well. This is why ECL are putting out a call to all those people whose jobs have been affected by COVID 19 to speak to us about temporary or fixed term employment. We need to continue providing care for older people out in the local communities in their own homes.
We are offering job opportunities with flexibility. This means that those working at reduced hours in their current role, have childcare issues, or other commitments; we still could have work for you.
These roles offer great benefits like £11.20 per hour, paid training and generous 45p per mileage allowance.
Rest assured, as part of our standard working process, our community care teams and Day Centres always maintain a high level of infection control, and given the heightened concern relating to the virus, all of our staff members are being briefed and given access to resources to keep themselves and our customers safe.

We have already been hearing some amazing stories about the lengths our front-line workers are going to in order to support ECL’s essential care services.
