How to Access Support

Call 111 – Mental Health Support

Your details will be forwarded to the sanctuary team  if we’re the right help for you and they will make contact with you as soon as possible.

Our team can talk by phone, text or invite you into our Sanctuary Spaces.

We’re there from 4-11pm in Harlow every day, Dunmow on Tuesdays, Saffron Walden on Thursdays, Stansted Mountfitchet on Fridays and Epping on Saturday.

Daylight Workers are in Loughton, Dunmow, Harlow and Saffron Walden, this is flexible though based on the needs of the service.

You will be supported by  a friendly and caring listener, given information around coping strategies and how to access any  help you need.

We can only accept people who have been referred into the service, there is no drop-in.
