A Cheeky Request!

Started by: jo anne (33694) 

Please can everyone tell their family & friends about The Sanctuary Wigan and Leigh!

Now based at Claire House Health Centre, Phoenix Way, Lower Ince, Wigan WN3 4NW

An even cheekier request, if you can:

* Please print out the poster & display in your local community centre, church, school, etc *

Wigan and Leigh residents, or those registered with a GP in the borough, can access the service by calling The Sanctuary on 0300 003 7029.

Following a conversation with trained Sanctuary staff, people will then either be offered telephone support or they will be invited to come to The Sanctuary for one-to-one support.

Really pleased!

I contacted Cllr Mrs Eunice Smethurst (Abram) and she kindly printed out the poster, put it up on the notice board in Spring View, and distributed it to community groups in the Abram area.

I'm trying to find out how to have it displayed on the Lower Ince notice board. Please can everyone keep spreading the word & have the poster put up if you can. Thanks

Hello Tonker!

Thanks Graneyjoseph, but it's the councillor who did all the work.

These 'business cards' are great, someone tweeted the photo having seen them at their GP's surgery, I've not noticed any at ours:

The Sanctuary in Bolton had an open evening last night as part of Mental Health Awareness Week.

A young woman called Lucy wrote a blogpost about her visit there and asks for people to please read and share - anyone can use these services.
