Manchester Metropolitan University report on Circles response to Covid

Friday 21 May 2021

At Circle we pride ourselves on ensuring we provide the best possible service for those work with and support.

To be 'the best we can be' requires we constantly monitor and examine our work. It is important that this analysis is conducted in an independent and open minded a fashion as possible.

Working with Manchester Metropolitan University we asked them to look at our response to the Covid Pandemic to ensure we are currently and in the future supporting older people across the Rochdale Borough as best we can.
