Safe Haven Contacts during the COVID-19 Isolation Period
To ensure the safety of you and our staff, we have moved our Adults’ Safe Haven to a telephone service during these challenging times. We understand that the current situation may cause a rise in mental health crisis whilst isolation prevents you from leaving your home, which is why we will continue to support you.
To contact the Adults’ Safe Haven, please call Freephone 0300 303 1560
Monday – Friday 6.30pm-10.30pm and Weekends and Bank Holidays 1pm-10.30pm
The Samaritans also offer a service outside of our opening times, 166 123 (24/7 FREE). In a life threatening emergency, please dial 999.
What is the Adults’ Safe Haven?
The Adults’ Safe Haven is for any adult needing immediate support at a time of crisis.
At the Safe Haven individuals develop short term coping strategies. If you visit you will also build knowledge and understanding of other (longer term) support.
You can be referred by a professional; like your GP or NHS 111 or you can self refer by attending the Safe Haven location.
