Covid-19 UPDATE...

We continue to provide support to our families throughout this time. Our Family Outreach Workers are keeping in touch with people over the telephone, by text and e-mail and by the use of video calling. We have set up a closed Facebook page for families we support on which we are sharing useful information and suggestions. We hope to establish some 'live' sessions and possibly groups via Zoom. Our Family Outreach Worker (Young People) and Family Outreach Worker (Fathers) are also continuing to provide support.

New referrals are still being accepted into the service. Please call 0131 552 0305 or 07984 022908 - Julie King
to discuss further.
