• We receive approximately 4 referrals a week. They come from GP’s and national organisations like The Royal British Legion, Walking with the Wounded, or Op Courage, all without a local presence in Sunderland.

We do signpost to other service providers that are better placed than ourselves such as Drug and Alcohol advice and Gambling advice.
