Space to Talk

What is it?

Space to Talk offers a safe, confidential space to come and talk when things are getting a bit much. Taking some time out to focus on your wellbeing is important for everyone and can be the first step to helping you feel more in control. There is no charge to use this service but donations to help support the running of the service are welcome.

How does it work?

First, you need to fill in a referral form, these can be found, in the reception area and in the toilets and put into the box marked ‘Lucy’ in the reception area. When there is availability, you will be invited to come in for an assessment with Lucy, our Wellbeing Practitioner, where you can discuss the best option of support for you. Sessions will be on a Monday and Tuesday between 10am-2pm.

Where is it?

The service runs from the mobile vehicle in the Lanterns Nursery school overflow carpark, making access to the service discreet. Alternative arrangements can be made, for those who are unable to access the bus.

Who is it for?

If you are a parent or carer of a child in the nursery school or one of our extended services then you can access this service by appointment only. The service will run a waiting list, so you may not be contacted immediately.
