A message from Lynsey Collinson – CEO – COVID – 19

I wanted to let you all know our plans moving forward here at developmentplus. As of today, our office at Queens Park Community Hub will be closed, currently until the end of April. However, we intend to continue working remotely and will maintain all of our mentoring projects via telephone, messenger, Whats-app and FaceTime. We understand that many of our clients will feel incredibly isolated over the coming weeks and it is our commitment to you that regular contact will be maintained.
We will keep everyone updated via our social media channels of next steps as they become apparent.

Take Care everyone,
