Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement
Remark! are unfortunately aware of the significant and current global pandemic of COVID-19. With this outbreak we will be immediately exploring our business continuity. Remark! has been closely monitoring the situation over the past couple of weeks and will continue to do so. We will continue to follow the advice from the Government as ultimately, we want to help ensure that we all work together in minimising the risk of any spread of the virus.
The priority must be the health, welfare and wellbeing of everyone. While we acknowledge that the guidance and advice may not be as specific and unambiguous as we would like, we will continue to work closely with our mentors.
At Remark! many of our services are imperative to our clients, including our ‘Outreach Service’ for vulnerable Deaf clients and BSL users/services. With this in mind, we will try and remain open and accessible for all our users. We will continue to deliver subtitling contents and InVision.
Remark! Interpreting services also remain available. We understand that the majority of the population have been encouraged and have to work from home remotely and we are also doing our best to adhere to this and are available for remote bookings via Skype, Zoom, FaceTime and Whatsapp.
We are also still going to face to face bookings when required however we are aware that things are changing daily, new government announcements are being made and it is important that we adhere to these.
Whether you are a new or regular client please contact our team if you require our services and need to book an interpreter.
Unfortunately we are unable to carry on providing our full range of BSL training courses (L1-L6) for the time being. We are working hard in an attempt to set up and make operational dial in/remote facility, allowing us to virtually give our students the time and training they require.
As a consequence of the latest Government guidance issued on 16 March 2020, in relation to non-essential travel and contact, we have taken the following actions;
We are monitoring the change in the Government and Public Health England advice regarding our clubs (Lunch Clubs, Badminton Club, Youth Club, Remarkable Club, Football Club etc) in order to prevent and protect. We regret to inform those who attend that we have needed to currently suspend and seize our programmes for a minimum of one month (17th April 2020), with the view to re-assess and review the situation as the weeks go on.
However, Remark! Community have been able to completely adapt to the situation by ensuring that we are still delivering our social outlets, just from our own homes!
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to join us for our weekly remote social outlets.
- Remarkables meet every Tuesdays, Thursdays from 1pm-4pm and Saturdays 3pm-6pm.
- Youth Clubs meet online every Wednesday from 4pm – 6pm and Friday 4pm - 6pm
- Sign Club is also now up and running 4pm-6pm on Tuesday afternoons, it is a FREE informal session where BSL students of all levels can practise their signing skills. It’s also a great opportunity to meet other students, learn something new and make friends!
Remark! Community is still open for its members; we are offering remote support during this difficult time, to provide access to the latest news and updates in BSL and to organise volunteers to collect groceries for its most vulnerable members during the outbreak.
If you would like to be kept informed with the latest updates please continue to visit our Facebook social media page: Remark! London or here on our website https://remark.uk.com , where we will frequently post crucial information and advice.
