In line current recommendations, we regret to announce that we have made the decision to cancel all face to face appointments & drop in services.

This has not been an easy decision & we appreciate the distress & anxiety that this decision may cause.

However, we feel that it is the right course of action to protect the health & wellbeing of our staff, volunteers, service users & our families.

As a result, the Centre will be closed to the public until Sunday 29th March with only minimal cover to answer calls & emails.
