Latest Update Coronavirus Response (COVID-19)

Orbiston Neighbourhood Centre is getting used to a new way of living. While the Centre is closed to the public to comply with Government guidelines our teams support the community through homeworking. Our Older Person Service check up on elderly persons at home ensuring they have essential food, supplies and access to prescriptions. Our Childcare Service is taking new registrations for before and after school care to be ready for the schools reopening. BeFriend Bellshill has switched to offering telephone support for older persons who're stuck at home and feeling lonely. We’ll be posting more updates as they arise on our Facebook and dedicated Twitters accounts for Childcare and Befriending Services. Contact details for teams can be found on pages on this website. For general enquiries you can always email us at info@oncbellshill.org.
