ACCESS THE SERVICE
The Centre is a free ’drop-in’ facility where people can come to enjoy the company of others in a relaxed, inclusive and safe environment. People benefit from peer and staff support and, in enabling people to build these supportive networks, we aim to reduce feelings of isolation and foster a sense of belonging. Our priority is to promote wellbeing and recovery.
Everyone using the service is encouraged to become involved both in the day-to-day operation of the Centre, and in longer-term planning. We hold regular Centre meetings where we share information, discuss issues and ensure that everyone has an opportunity to express their opinion.
There are several ways to access the service. You can pop in in person. where a staff member is available you will be asked to register with the service and fill in a short registration form. If we are unable to see you we will make an appointment for you to return at a suitable time to you.
You can call us and make an appointment to visit the service. We also take referrals from Social work, other organisations and GP Surgery's
