CC Hackney & NHS ELFT update


Since August 2019 lead coach Keir Apperley has been in talks with mental health service management at NHS East London Foundation Trust about piloting and testing an ongoing programme of sports club delivery focussed on people experiencing mental health challenges. The Solution Bike Hub has been running since 8th September and core group testing for In Tune FC has been rolling since the beginning of October.

Exemptions to lockdown 2 otherwise It takes two - during covid LD2

November 2020 


A child/young person will be given a place in face to face sessions if they are struggling with reduced social contact and/or change and this is having an especially negative impact on one or more of these areas:

·         Struggling with mental health or emotional wellbeing

·         Struggling with lots of change, particularly around routines

·         Struggling with isolation and loss of opportunity to socialise

·         Struggling with using screens for activities

·         Has regressed in social/emotional communication and/or confidence

Otherwise all CC Hackney bases are operating at the bare minimum for a month or so during LD2. At Fawcett Bike Club for example it is one in one out, Thursday evenings 6-8pm on Fawcett Estate. It's only a few weeks and then we'll see where we're at. Until then it takes two.

2. Rob Base & DJ EZ  "It Takes Two"



Club members and management have been looking into the lockdown law and you can create a support group to support vulnerable, which in this case could involve cycling:
 
Exception 5: Support and respite
(7) Exception 5 is that it is reasonably necessary for P to leave or be outside P’s home—
(a) to attend a meeting of a support group which is permitted to meet under regulation 11(6);
 
(6) Exception 5 is that—
(a) the gathering—
(a) 2006 c. 47.
(i) is of a support group,
(ii) consists of no more than 15 persons, and
(iii) takes place at premises other than a private dwelling, and
(b) it is reasonably necessary for members of the group to be physically present at the
gathering.
 
8) For the purposes of paragraph (6), “support group” means a group or one to one support which is organised by a business, a charitable, benevolent or philanthropic institution or a public
body to provide mutual aid, therapy or any other form of support to its members or those who attend its meetings, for example those providing support... to vulnerable young people.
