How we work with you

We understand it can be very difficult to take the first step to reach out for help. When you’re ready, we will be here.

Our staff will listen and won’t make judgements. They can help you understand your options and guide you through the process of accessing the help you need - whether that's from Porchlight or another organisation.

We offer emotional support and practical help. This includes being able to liaise with your GP or other health professionals also involved in your support if you wish.

We can also help with things that may be adding to the pressure you’re under, such as housing problems, work, or money.

We offer a range of services, including:
