A message from our CEO, Carol Stephens:
‘To all our clients – past, present and future
Unfortunately, we’ve had to suspend all our face-to-face services and peer support groups. But we’ve not forgotten you – our staff are working hard in their homes to adapt our services to continue to provide support. You can text or call them on their mobiles (details on Contact Page and they’ll call you back if you want) or email us. But please be patient – this is new territory for us all as we try to get used to this ‘new normal’.
These are worrying and testing times for us all, but fortunately we live in a very caring, resilient and resourceful community that has faced hardship in the past. We’ll face this together…and we’re here for you.
Stay safe, stay strong…and STAY IN!..(if you can…)’
