The Emotional Wellbeing Service

The service is still running but cannot offer face to face sessions at the moment. Referrals can still be made for remote intervention and the group will be ironing out the nature of these over the next couple of weeks, - ie webchat, email, resources, phone. Go to https://emotionalwellbeingservice.org.uk for info and to make an online referral.
