Spitalfields Crypt Trust

SCT adapts to Covid-19

We have taken significant action to reduce the spread of the virus, whilst ensuring that people can access the support they need during this turbulent time.

Over the past year, we have adapted as many services as possible to take place online or over the phone, and this will continue for the time being. Unfortunately, some of our face-to-face services will remain suspended until further notice. Please see below for details about each service. 

For people in recovery, isolation has been difficult, so SCT staff and volunteers have been making every effort to keep everyone connected, through virtual quizzes, art classes, crosswords, online yoga, and more. Where possible, the training and development centre has been running classes and activities virtually, with new ideas being developed along the way. We have also been publishing a series of stories, articles, and poems about recovery in lockdown, to encourage creative writing, share advice for those in similar positions, and build connections with other people and groups.

We are re-opening our services as quickly and safely as possible.
