Someone to talk to
If you need a chat about housing, sexual health, mental health, money matters or anything else that is on your mind, then please come and see us during our opening hours.
You can call in to the drop-ins and receive information and support on housing, benefits, job seeking and more. We offer pregnancy testing on site. We also offer c-card pick up and registration and food bank vouchers.
Remember all of these services are free and you don’t need an appointment. On occasion you may have to wait until someone can see you. Its a good idea to arrive at least 45 minutes before the drop-in closes to give you plenty of time to talk to us.
Support with your mental health
If you would like to discuss your mental health then please come to one of our ‘Someone to talk to’ drop-in sessions to meet a project worker who can assess your needs and find the best support for you – sometimes this will be counselling. It might be through Centre 33 or with another organisation. We can help you find a good fit. Read more information about counselling here.
No need for an appointment- just drop by!
The drop-in runs on Wednesdays, 2pm-5pm at the Maple Centre. You can call in to the drop-in without an appointment and speak to someone between these hours to see if we can support you. Booked counselling appointments are also available outside of these hours.
We’re very grateful to the Masonic Charitable Foundation for helping us to provide this service.
