Inspired Villages’ response to coronavirus

With the outbreak of coronavirus in the UK escalating, I want to take this opportunity to let you know what we’re doing in response. To be clear, the health, safety and wellbeing of our people and the residents, their families and our colleagues and their families in our villages and offices are our top priorities.

We have a dedicated team who are working closely with the senior leadership to ensure we are responding appropriately to this fast-moving situation.

To help keep the residents safe we restricted all our village centre communal areas to residents-only on the 12th March. This meant a number of events have been cancelled and any visitors wishing to look at the show suite, or contractors who need to come on-site, were screened in advance to check they have not been exposed to coronavirus or have the symptoms, before being given access to non-central areas. Enhanced cleaning measures across all our villages have been in operation for weeks. 

We have also launched a ‘Virtual Village Centre’ on Facebook that we will be filling with content such as videos for exercises that can be done at home, recipes, films, advice on managing your mental health during self-isolation, gardening tips, wildlife watch ideas, live music performances and much more. This resource is not just for the residents for our villages – creating communities is the core of what we do, and we want to help as many people as possible not feel isolated if they have to self-isolate. So please do head to to join and share widely with friends, families and anyone else whom you think would benefit. 

As it stands no colleagues or residents have tested positive for coronavirus. Our actions are precautionary measures, that have exceeded Public Health England advice, to keep our people and the residents in our villages safe. 

I hope that you and your loved ones stay well during these difficult times and thank you for your support. 

Kind regards and stay safe,

Jamie Bunce
