Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is a rapidly evolving situation and advice from the Government is understandably being updated on a very frequent basis. Cognus is following the current Government and NHS guidance which we continue to monitor daily.

Everyone at Cognus understands that this is a difficult time.

Please be assured that we are working constantly with the Local Authority, schools, education settings, and health and community partners to ensure the continuity of our services during these unprecedented times.

To ensure we continue to provide essential services all Cognus teams are contactable via the usual numbers. Please use these links below for additional resources.

We will be in touch directly with those that may be affected by any changes to our circumstances.
