(around the corner from The Forum/Centre E with free parking. Please let us know in advance if you have mobility issues as we can arrange to meet you on the ground floor.)

Opening hours

WE ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS. But call, email or text and we will get back to you.
Drop-in for all services:

2-5pm Thursday
Counselling Appointments:
Thursday 3pm – 7pm

We are no longer open for drop-in on a Monday in Ely but please call the helpline or come and see us on a Thursday.

Someone to talk to

If you need a chat about housing, sexual health, money matters, mental health, emotional well-being 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, money or job seeking. We offer chlamydia, gonorrhoea and pregnancy testing on site. We also offer food bank vouchers.

Remember all of these services are free and you don’t need an appointment. Just come in for a hot drink and a chat. 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 talk about  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.
