Visiting Loved Ones in our Residential Rehabs and Housing Services

We are pleased to announce at some of our services we are now beginning to allow visits.

 

With the latest announcement from the government, Phoenix Futures have taken steps to reinstate visits to our Residential Services in England, with certain actions required to ensure these are done in a safe manner. Please note at this stage in line with Scotland guidelines we are unable to accept visits at the Scottish Residential Service.

For more information on visiting our residentials at this time please read the document found below.

Where we are unable to offer visits at the moment we are continuing to make alternative arrangements for family contacts to be made remotely. Our staff will be happy to talk to you about any concerns you may have around contacting your loved ones – just call the relevant service.
