Here at The Bureau we have always been a responsive and community-led organisation, we care deeply about our team, our volunteers and the community we serve. The current public health situation with Coronavirus is a serious challenge to all of us and the way we do things as a society.

We are currently delivering events through online media with the hope of holding in-person events as lockdown eases in the near future. We are looking continually at current guidelines with a view to reopening as soon as is safely possible.

Please check Facebook for our event updates, see our YouTube channel for some great videos, or sign up for our newsletter 

In the meantime please stay safe and look after each other – if there is anything that you feel The Bureau could be doing or you would like to contribute to our thinking about how to act in the future, please do get in touch.

More information about the virus and how to stay safe is here on the NHS website.
