In light of the current situation, and with regard to the closure of Schools, we find that many of our team will not be able to commit their time, as they have previously done. We are extremely proud of the level of service we provide, and this is due to the strength of the team at Emerge. Unfortunately we are not going to be able to sustain this level of service and must now make some crucial decisions, for the good of everyone. We will close our premises today and will no longer offer a walk in service, or face to face appointments. We have been in contact with all our current and future clients to advise them all individually. Unfortunately we are unable to take on new clients until we get back into our premises. While we would have liked more time to prepare, the rapidly changing situation has forced this upon us and we need to take action now. In these difficult times it is essential that we look out for each other, and support each other to come through this stronger and better.
Please note Lifeline are still open on 0808 808 8000.
