If you are feeling lonely you can contact the DbS office phone or text new number 07715 421 399 between the hours of 10am-2pm or email.
You can still contact the DbS in your normal way. The new number is to help you not feel so lonely.
All activities at DbS Centre have been stopped until after Easter. Please do not come to the DbS Centre. After Easter we will let you know when activities are starting again.
