The way you get support from us will be different for a while, but we are still here. Things are still changing, so keep checking this page, our Facebook, Twitter and our national coronavirus info page for updates.

You can call us on 0151 556 1335 or email [email protected].

If your worker isn’t available, please give us a call on the main service number. We’re answering calls between 9:00 and 17:00. If you ring outside of those hours, please leave a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Updates to the service:

  • Our Birkenhead hub is open from 9:00 - 17:00 on Monday to Friday. The address of the hub has changed - it's now: Market Wells, 84 Market Street, Birkenhead CH41 6HB. 
  • Our Wallasey hub is open from 9:00 - 17:00 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

  • Needle exchange and naloxone are available at the Birkenhead hub and the Wallasey hub.
  • If you're new to the service, we can do assessments over the phone.
