Given the recent advice from the government we have made the difficult decision to close the Maya Centre office from 20 March 2020 until further notice. We feel this is the responsible thing to do given that the current guidance from central government is for all people to reduce social contact in the community. We will continue to provide 1:1 counselling via telephone or live video counselling for the moment and will continue to accept referrals, in electronic form only. At this very difficult time please look after yourselves and those around you.
Where our switch number appears during lockdown we are calling from private numbers and caller display will not show the number.
