LATEST NEWS - Updated 16/08/2022
The waiting list for our Counselling Service/Talking Therapies Clinic is open as of Thursday 18 August.
The advice during the heatwave is to avoid travel, to stay hydrated, to try to stay cool using fans etc, and to stay where it’s coolest – this could be outside in the shade or indoors.
We are easing the restrictions we brought in to manage during the coronavirus lockdowns. We will no longer be taking bookings for the drop-in, art room etc. and will not have a cap on the number of clients who can attend.
We will continue to take people’s temperatures on arrival and encourage people to wear masks when moving around the building. We continue to ask that you stay at home and do not attend the day centre if you have a new continuous cough, a fever, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, or have tested positive for coronavirus.
For details of our services, please view the timetable
We continue to offer 1-hour face-to-face appointments across all services. Please contact us on 020 3301 9850 if you would like to see a member of staff in person.
