December 2020:

Like many The Hummingbird Centre have had to adapt in the way we support the community of Bicester and Oxfordshire affected by cancer during COVID-19

We have been operating our phones remotely, along with emails, we've changed our services in accordance with demand, all our counselling team have been trained to carry out counselling by Zoom, Teams or What's App which we felt was better than telephone.

Later part of July we introduced our Equine Therapy working with Loes from Equilore and her heard of horses, we've found this to been really empowering for our guests and families, enabling them to move forward, adapt to the way we are living and coping with their journey of cancer. The equine therapy is 1:1, outside and conducted in accordance to the guidelines, we can confirm Loes was given the authority by Oxfordshire County Council to practice.

We've offered a service of support to the NHS staff and Key Workers who have been supporting people affected by cancer during these very testing and challenging times.

We are trying to keep the community, guests, volunteers, stakeholders up to date regarding when we will be opening and how, which as you can imagine brings many challenges due to the services that we offer.

You will see within this section we have created two sections one for our volunteers and guests/community containing copies of the correspondence we have sent out over the last few weeks..

However should you have any queries please give us a call on 01869 244244

Kind Regards
