Happy New Year to everyone, whoever you are and wherever you are.

Happy New Year to everyone, whoever you are and wherever you are. As we said yesterday we understand that the New Year is a difficult time of year for many. It can mark a passing of time and when people feel hopeless about the future, this can exacerbate feelings of hopelessness and desperation. Over 2018 we promise to keep working hard to keep people safe and help them to feel as though, no matter how bad things are, there is always someone there for them – someone who can help and support.

As we enter 2018, we ask you to support us. We know that we will face challenges, as each of us will, but as a service we are also hopeful that we will work around the clock to make this a successful year. No matter how hard things get, we will be here for you and will find a way to help everyone who asks us for it.

Happy New Year Everyone and thank you for all your support over the last year. We hope we can all make you proud in 2018.



If you are in crisis and need some support right now please call the Samaritans on 116 123, or call Hopeline on 0800 068 41 41. If you would like support from ourselves, feel free to email us and we will get in touch in the New Year.
