This place opened up doorways for so many people.

God bless this home away from home."

17th February 2021 – Service Update

In line with the governments update on COVID 19 and for the safety of our service users, volunteers, staff and counsellors we will not be holding any face to face services or HIV testing. We have a vast array of virtual support, including one to one support, counselling and various virtual socials, which will all continue.
Our working hours have not changed, we are here Monday to Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm. We will be sure to keep you updated with any changes to our services in the future but remember, you are not alone, we are here for you.
