Need help? 

If you are looking for help, the first place to go is usually our Drop In Advice Centre.  

This runs Monday – Thursday at the Sycamore Centre.

Tickets are given out from 8:30am and clients are seen from 9:30am onwards.

Please arrive by 9:00am to ensure entry and avoid disappointment.

One of our advisors will talk with you to find out which of our many projects will be helpful to you.

While you are more than welcome to just turn up to the Women’s Group or the Community Cafe, for all our other projects you must talk to a Drop In Center adviser first.
