COVID-19 VIRTUAL SERVICES

Diversity House has set up a range of support services for its intergenerational service users and communities. These online virtual services ranges from health and wellbeing to drop-in one to one, advice and support, social and life skills training and can be accessed via video chats with our staff on Zoom video conferencing software. Each session will be from 30-60 minutes and can be accessed on phones, tablets or computers.

Before accessing, try to download the Zooms App or Play Store on your device or desktop – this can be found on your app store or at: https://zoom.us/ if this does not work, alternatively you can select the option to use the browser instead.
Once you have agreed the terms and conditions, you should be able to join chats at the advertised times. Each session will be led by one or two facilitators and they will aim to be on the app 5 minutes before any session.

PLEASE NOTE LINKS WILL ONLY WORK AT THE TIMES ADVERTISED

When in video sessions it is better to use headphones, as this helps with noise. If the call is very busy the facilitator might decide to mute people’s microphones. You can still ask questions and talk using the chat facility. If you are muted and want to talk, the app has a ‘reactions’ feature that lets you raise a hand to let the session facilitator(s) know you want to speak.
If you are having any problems accessing or have any questions about the program, please email: info@diversityhouse.org.uk or Phone us on: 07484536562
