SERVICE UPDATE

We regret that the health crisis related to the coronavirus means that we have been left with no choice but to close all Build on Belief services with immediate effect in order to safeguard the health of our staff, volunteers and service users.

We will seek to support people through our social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn, and will arrange for our staff to be available for telephone support at certain times over the weekend.

We will be monitoring events daily and will do our best to resume normal services as soon as is possible.

TELEPHONE SUPPORT

We know social isolation is hard on the soul. It doesn't matter if you are still struggling with your substance use, or are in recovery, being alone is difficult and can bring up all sorts of negative thoughts, cravings, and unwelcome feelings. At Build on Belief, we understand that all too well. As a charity full of people in recovery, we too are fighting our own battles with cabin fever. We have therefore decided to provide a telephone support service, and lend a helping ear to anyone who needs a friendly soul to chat to. 

We will make sure that five of our staff are available between the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm, seven days a week for the duration of the coronavirus lock down. If you look below, you will find the names and telephone numbers of people you can ring on any given day. 

A few ground rules, if we may.

  • Firstly, this is not an emergency service and we may not be in a position to help you if you are in a crisis. 
  • Please only ring the staff members listed as being available on that particular day.
  • Please do not ring outside of the hours mentioned above. We will not answer if you do.
  • Please be polite. Our staff are in recovery too, and while they are happy to chat to you, they are not there to be abused, shouted at, or otherwise hassled.

Please scroll down within the table if you use a mobile phone and can't see the full schedule.
