Public Statement from, David Maguire, Chief Executive of WIRED. 27th March 2020
I am pleased to be able to confirm that although we have suspended face to face meetings and scooter hire service the majority of our services remain fully operational and our staff and volunteers are available via telephone, email, and video call to continue to support you as always. However, this week, in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, WIRED has migrated the whole organisation to home working arrangements which means that until further notice WIRED’s offices in Birkenhead, Liscard, New Brighton, Liverpool and Warrington will be closed. Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers will continue to be available through our existing telephone and email helplines information, advice and support channels as usual. Please don’t hesitate to call or email us, even if it’s just for some reassurance or information about local services, we are happy to help. We have over 10,000 people registered with us for support and we will continue to do our very best during this period of change.
