The service provides accessible help to people needing support at a time of crisis in their lives, whatever the issue, whoever they may be, wherever they are located.
It aims to help help-seekers find immediate relief from emotional distress, explore coping strategies for the current crisis, safely manage any immediate threats to life or safety, open pathways for longer term solutions to underlying issues or preventative measures, and focus specific next steps the help-seeker can take to follow-up on after the contact.
It seeks to achieve these aims by supportively engaging with the help-seeker in an empathic, collaborative, non-judgemental and empowering process.
