COVID-19 – Service Updates

These are extraordinary times, but at Foundation we are making an extraordinary effort to deliver the essential services we provide to support our communities. Our services play a key role in many communities across the north of England, offering vital housing, welfare and domestic abuse support. Our clients need us more than ever, and we are working hard to find new, safe and effective ways to be there.

So that we can continue to deliver services safely, many of our offices and non-residential services are now closed for the time being. This means that at some services face-to-face appointments and groups will be postponed until further notice. Please see below for full details of how this will affect your service, and how you can access support.

Some services will be offering support over the phone or online where possible, and we are working hard to expand this over the coming weeks. We will provide regular updates and any new ways of accessing services on this page.

We know that this could be a difficult time for many of our clients, and we want to reassure you that our dedicated colleagues are working hard to help and support you. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our head office is now closed to visitors, but you can contact a service directly using the details below.
