In light of the guidance from Government today and after much careful consideration, we have come to the difficult decision to temporarily close our ICM and IO radio offices and studios as of today, Monday 16th March and suspend all classes and projects.
We take the health and safety of our visitors, learners, volunteers and staff extremely seriously, and after assessing the risks of continuing in the current circumstances we feel we cannot continue to work effectively and safely with the numbers of people we have using the facilities, many of whom are vulnerable and/or have underlying health issues.
We will be closed for all courses and sessions for the foreseeable future. Dates for these projects resuming will be posted on our websites and social media channels.
In the meantime are working to find alternative ways of running some of our projects online, so please keep an eye out for email updates and updates on our online platforms.
We have not come to this decision lightly, it is done with the sole intention of protecting our staff, volunteers, learners and the wider community, especially those most at risk from coronavirus.
We are sure you will understand the measures we are putting in place in these uncertain times and we look forward to returning to normal in the near future.
The ICM team
