Coronavirus carries a high risk of harm. At this point in phase three of the government’s routeplan we are still delivering remote services to keep people safe. Please check back to this page for updates about future changes. 

  • Our helpline is open as usual.
  • Staff and volunteers are only permitted to offer learning and befriending services remotely for now: by telephone, text, email or online. 
  • No face to face learning or befriending services but we are still supporting just as many if not more people online and by phone, text and by email.
