SMT response to the Covid-19 pandemic

Our main focus continues to be the protection of the health, wellbeing and safety of staff and service users alike. 

Face to face support has been re-introduced on a phased basis for essential appointments only and we continue to provide the majority of our services using remote methods of communication. We are continually reviewing this situation in line with Welsh Government guidelines. 

Please be assured that staff remain in regular contact with our service users and are able to take new referrals for support.  

At this time, our group sessions remain on hold however we are examining ways of re-introducing smaller, more frequent groups in the future.  

I appreciate your continued patience and support and hope you remain safe and well.
