Help offered

Ashton’s Bridge of Hope are responding to the emerging needs of the community across Belfast and beyond during the Covid-19 lockdown. 

The team are now keeping safe and are working from home and will continue to support our clients during our normal working hours, Monday – Thursday 8.30 am to 5 pm and Friday 9 am to 2.30 pm.   

Whilst some of our face to face services have had to stop temporarily, we are continuing to provide talking therapy using telephone counselling. 

We also have a range of other services to support the current and emerging needs.  Our Health & Wellbeing Coordinators continue to work with victims and survivors providing help and support in whatever way they can and our Training Coordinator is working on innovative ways to deliver stress management training online.
