Coronavirus update: May 2021

It is with great regret that we announce all placements planned for 2021 are cancelled.

Although vaccine efforts have been a huge success in the UK, the on-going risk of disruption to international travel, safety and the additional costs relating to quarantining volunteers would incur are still at levels to great to operate. This is in agreement with the government guidance.

We thank you all for your support and cant wait to welcome you in 2022.
