WE ARE HERE TO HELP

With your issues of Loss and Grief

We offer support for people living with loss and grief of any sort- including grief from bereavement, separation, illness, isolation and other life changes.

 Covid-19 

Our Invercargill Drop In Centre, based at 49 Tay Street, Invercargill will reopen on the 18th of May, 2020.

This will operate with adjusted hours, as listed below:

Monday 1.00 - 5.00pm

Wednesday 9.00 -1.00pm

Friday 1.00 - 5.00pm

We will be implementing Responsible Access Guidelines, which include the following:

The door will remain locked- Please knock LOUDLY and a support worker will greet you

Upon entering, hands must be sanitised

A contact register will be completed, to assist with contact tracing if required

Social distancing will be adhered to at all times

We are no longer able to offer hot or cold drinks, so we encourage you to pop down to your favourite local cafe prior to coming in, and bring one with you

Deep cleaning of the centre, particularly high touch areas, will take place between each visitor

And MOST importantly- Please only enter if:

  • You do not have any symptoms associated with Covid- 19 (e.g. fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, sneezing, runny nose, loss of smell)
  • You do not have Covid-19 nor are you awaiting the results from being tested for Covid-19
  • You have not been in contact with any known or suspected cases of Covid-19 in the past 14 days
  • You have not returned, or been in contact with anyone else who has returned from overseas in the past 14 days

Until then, we have moved to an Emotional Wellbeing Phone Call Service. We will be providing regular phone contact to anyone feeling isolated, afraid, or managing grief at this time. Our phone will be on daily and support workers will answer or follow up on messages left.

Anyone can request this support for themselves, or for another person with that persons permission.

To talk to us, please give us a call on 027 443 8788
