Our service is currently implementing precautionary measures in response to COVID-19 to ensure that we are safeguarding service users and staff and as much as possible limiting the spread of the virus.
As such, we will be providing a reduced service at present, whereby we are only able to accept referrals which require an immediate crisis response - referrals will be reviewed and if we cannot offer you a service at this time we will write to you.
