COVID-19 Virus Charity Update

We are closing the Lounges and all face-to face therapy in line with the government’s advice on social distancing, but we are committed to maintaining counselling and support through digital contact or by phone where possible. The position of the government and the measures in place are changing daily so we will stay in touch and be clear about what it means for our charity and for you, our service users.
Please keep in regular contact with your key worker/ therapist via Skype or by telephone during this time. Rachael will be in touch with everyone who attends the Lounge to discuss further measures, including group support. Your therapist will be in touch to organise continued therapy in whatever method suits you best.
Stay safe, everyone, and bear with us as we try to maintain your support in this difficult time.
