We are here to help
Normally, we are open for both drop in or phone support.
However, during lockdowns it is phone only.
When we transition back from lockdown there will still be Covid-19 pandemic restrictions designed to keep everyone safe. If you are unwell do not come to the centre, please ring instead. If you do come to the centre please check in, please wear a mask, observe social distancing of 1.5 metres and sanitise if you are in the building. If you cannot do these things we would prefer that you ring for support instead.
