Pathways to Employment lockdown service update

Our building is closed but we’re still here for you

Although we have had to temporarily close our Cellar Trust building on Farfield Road in order to protect our staff and clients at this time, our Employment team are still available to offer phone support to all our clients, and our Haven crisis support team are working hard to give telephone support to those that need it.

Our Charity Shop, Cafe and Woodwork & Horticulture department are closed for the foreseeable future, but we will be in touch when we are allowed to re-open.

For our Pathways to Employment clients, please call 01274 588002 if you need us.

Peer Support Group

The usual Tuesday Peer Support Group is now online! We have set up a Peer Support Group using Zoom, an video and audio chat tool. If you would like to be part of this group, please call us on 01274 588002 or email us at mail@thecellartrust.org to register your interest.

“It’s nice just to talk to other people and provide support and encouragement. I really enjoyed it. I could also see that the other participants enjoyed it too, lots of laughs and smiles. I shall look forward to next week”.

IT Club

Even though we are not meeting face-to-face for IT Club, you can access the Learn My Way programme if you are able to access the internet at home. You will need an email address to set up an account.
