Accessing our support has changed a little since we are not able to see children, young people and their families face-to-face at this time. The Hive,Take 5 and Families In Mind staff are working hard to make sure that a version of the ‘drop in’ and family assessments are still available to those who may need help and support now more than ever.


All ’drop ins’ and family assessments will now be telephone appointments, but that will be the only difference. Practitioners will ensure that the same level of support and confidentiality is upheld, and will ensure that the same quality of service is delivered.
