Ready for Everything Communities

COVID-19 UPDATE: Although our buildings are closed until further notice, we continue to provide many of our services by phone. In these times of need, our mission to build Ready for Everything communities is more important than ever. Ready for Everything communities are groups of people who support each other to overcome problems, prevent them from occurring again and help each other to thrive and achieve their goals. SERVICES DURING LOCKDOWN: We are still offering vital free and confidential advice services remotely to those in need during the lockdown. For urgent advice queries call 07593 266043 to speak to our team.
