Stars is now accepting referrals. Due to Covid-19 however, we are expecting a high volume of referrals to the service and we will monitor numbers in line with our capacity.

We have adapted our service in response to Covid-19 and can offer telephone and online counselling support and online assessments.

Current clients who are waiting for counselling will continue to be supported in an advisory capacity by Stars.

Families and schools can contact us on 01223 863511 for advice or support. If we are unable to answer the phone, please leave a message and we will respond as soon as we can.

Please check our website regularly for updates.
