Accessibility Strategy

At Talk Listen Change we want everyone to be able to use our services, and to make services available to anyone who wants them. We are aware though, that some people and groups may have more barriers to obtaining services than others.

Our phone lines are also open 9am-9pm, so there will be a team member available to support you with any enquiry.

We do have ground floor access and counselling/meeting rooms in both our main centres, with accessible toilets and parking, and some counsellors speak additional languages that may facilitate clients, however we are working on other limitations, and are keen to have any limitations you may perceive about us brought to our attention.

If you notice a problem with accessing our services, please do let us know and we will work to overcome this. If you would like more information about this, please ask our staff, call us or e-mail us.
