COVID-19 Official Update

As we are sure you are all aware, everyone is currently facing uncertainty, linked to the international outbreak of the Corona Virus (COVID-19).  


Our Senior Leadership Team are closely monitoring all updates and recommendations. Based on current advice, we are aiming to maintain a ‘business as usual’ approach but as the situation is evolving, we will communicate any further updates.  We are committed to looking after the wellbeing of our staff and volunteers and of course all those accessing our support and services. 


To minimise the risks, reduce large gatherings and to manage capacity within our teams, we have made the following decisions relating to our service provisions effective immediately. 


  • All open access drop in/assessment sessions for children and young people will stop. 

  • Booked appointments will continue and can be arranged  by contacting us on: 0161 330 9223 or via: office [at]

  • The majority of our group training / workshops / courses will be cancelled / postponed. Attendees will be notified.

We will be making contact with all those accessing our 1-1 services prior to appointments to ensure it is appropriate to attend.


If you are accessing our services and are concerned about attending your appointments due to any risk of infection, please do contact us through 0161 330 9223 and discuss your concerns as we may be able to offer support through telephone if face to face appointments are not an option at the time. We appreciate this is a difficult time for everyone and supporting our local communities through this is the priority for us. We will continue to review our services and will be looking at plans to maintain the support we provide through alternative means as further guidance is released.
