SUPPORT DURING COVID
KBS will follow government advice relating to the coronavirus pandemic to which all our staff are required to adhere. We will continue to carefully monitor the situation and provide updates accordingly. We apologise for any inconvenience that changes we make to our service may cause but hope you will understand that the safety and wellbeing of those who provide and access our service is paramount.
We are glad to say that we have started offering face to face counselling again. We will continue to offer our service through telephone and video counselling for those who prefer socially distanced sessions.
Families, children and young people
The Saying Goodbye Project is currently unable to accept referrals into the service as a result of some months of uncertainty around funding for the project. We are pleased to say that a recent grant has addressed the funding gap and we hope to be able to accept referrals into the service in the coming months. Please check the website for the latest update.
We are not currently arranging any face-to-face training, and you will be contacted if you have already have a training date booked. If you have any concerns or would like support, advice or information, please do get in touch, and we will support you as best we can.
Getting in touch
If you have any concerns about these arrangements, or would like to access support or information, we are still operating and able to support you in as flexible a way as possible. Please make contact on 020 8547 1552 if you would like to talk to one of our team.
