Our physical doors may be closed, but our support services are still available.

Please find below a list of our current services on offer, during lockdown 2, to young people (and their families) aged 11-25 that live or would usually go to school in the Stroud District.

“We understand that due to COVID 19 many professionals are unable to meet face to face with their clients. As a result our Family Support Service is happy to receive unsigned electronic referrals during this time so that we can continue to support young people and parents that need it. During this time we will be undertaking assessment via video link where possible. Please note the referral charge remains unchanged.”

If you know which service you would like to make a referral to please check our referral guidelines before you proceed.

If you are unsure which services you need or have any other questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with the team on 01453 756745
