Changes to our Service Delivery due to COVID-19



Don't worry we're still here to support you! We have had to close our office but our staff are working remotely to support you. If you are being supported by our practitioners they will be in touch to rearrange therapeutic sessions to take place over the phone or via video link.


If you're on our waiting list, our practitioners are working hard to make contact to check in with you.


We are still taking referrals and have opened a daily duty telephone line for advice, support and guidance during this difficult time.


The Link Duty Line is open Monday - Friday, 2-4pm

Update 25/06/2020

Our staff will be returning to the office on 6th July and we have put all the necessary measures in place to protect the team. At the moment we are still delivery services remotely however, we will be continuously reviewing this and plan on a phased return to face to face delivery in the coming months.
