COVID-19 - SiT’s position statement

Our staff, clients and community are extremely valued by us. We recognise that a high proportion of our clients have serious underlying health issues and in order to protect them and our staff we are no longer offering face to face support.

However we have worked tirelessly this week to make contact with every survivor who we are currently working with to assure you that we will continue to support you via online or telephone going forward. This includes new referrals, assessments, regular calls, therapy and we are even working on group solutions! We are absolutely committed to continuing to delivering our service and providing high quality support for survivors at this difficult time.

Please don't struggle alone - you can still make contact with us in all the same ways - one of our terrific team will be at the end of the phone, video call, text or email Monday to Friday 9-5 as usual.

You are not alone. We will get through this together.

Fiona Ellis & Clare Wilson, Founders
