COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

This web-page is to provide our staff, volunteers, families, carers and visitors with the information on how The Hamlet has acted in relation to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

This page will be updated regularly: you can track the latest cases of COVID-19 in the UK, and our region here: (click the link).

Until further notice we are not able to offer a service to our families, children and adults from either Ella Road or Johnson Place.

We will continue to update this page as when we have news of any change to this.

Our staff are maintaining contact with families, students and members and offering support as much as we can. We are working closely with Norfolk County Council to ensure that our most vulnerable families have support at this difficult time. 

Our family support page has lots of ideas for activities and links to other organisations. Click HERE

Definitely follow our Facebook page which offers a wealth of support, ideas and ongoing communication for our families. Click HERE to follow and like our page.
