The Twilight Sanctuary is designed to offer to support to our members experiencing distress or low mood outside of our normal office hours, however if you feel like you may be a danger to yourself or others please call 999 and ask for an ambulance
We are aware that more people than ever are struggling with life’s difficulties and pressures. When life gets too difficult it can be hard to contain the feelings and emotions that arise, which can lead to thoughts of self-harm and/or suicide. Since February 2021 we have been piloting a new Twilight Sanctuary service. This provides comfort and support from experienced and qualifies crisis support practitioners.
The service is open 5 nights a week (currently not on Tuesdays or Saturdays) from 7pm to 11pm, Staff are able to take calls from 7pm on the Sanctuary lines : 01874 793118 and 07375 109732.
What can you expect?
- To be treated as an individual
