Changes to our service provision due to Covid-19
Due to the current Covid-19 crisis we will be implementing a variety of measures which differ from service to service. All members and clients who use our services are being contacted by phone about this.
The recent government statement about easing the lockdown is not changing how we are providing services at the current time – please check back here for any updates, keep safe and look after yourselves!
For people who use our peer support groups on a drop-in basis: these groups are not meeting in our building. However we have introduced online peer support groups – at the moment our Anxiety group, Mixed Hearing Voices group and Mood group are up and running. If you would like to attend any of these, please call on 0207 911 0822 and leave your name, number and a brief message and we will get back to you with details of how to join in. This week also sees the return of our Wednesday Young Person’s Hearing Voices group – please email email@example.com if you would like to come to this.
