Where To Get Help

Support over the seasonal break

Where to get help

It’s that time of year again where we shut down to have a seasonal break and recharge our batteries. This year we will be closing for our seasonal break on Saturday 21st December and we will reopen until Saturday 4th January 2020.

We know that this can be a very difficult time of year for people and want to make you aware of other services that are open to offer support in times of crisis.

Over the holiday period other services are open to offer support to people who need urgent care or someone to talk to.  The following is a list of services that people can access if they need support.  We really hope that you and your loved ones don’t need this but just in case……….
