We are COVID safe!

SHINE for Kids is committed to protecting its staff, volunteers, visitors and the children and families we work with.

We have a Covid-19 Safety Plan, which is in line with government regulations.

All staff, volunteers and visitors are required to check in using a QR code before entering our sites or child and family centres.

And finally, our staff will be constantly reminding children and families about the need for frequent hand sanitisation, and the safe way to sneeze.
