Covid-19 – Our service is still running

Huge thanks to everyone who has lent their support during this difficult time.

These are unprecedented times for everyone and we – like most – are having to constantly review and change the way that we are working to ensure we continue to get support to those who need it, when they need it.

We are extremely proud that we have remained open throughout the pandemic and have been here, ready to help those who need it and have made a huge difference.  This would not have been possible if it wasn’t due to the continued support of the local community .

For more details on our work during the pandemic and how you can lend your support and donate to help those in need, please click here.
