Adults’ Safe Haven

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.

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.
