Positive Help Edinburgh

Preparing for the Festive Period

As mentioned in our previous post, Positive Help will be closed from Saturday 22nd December 2018 to Wednesday 2nd January 2019 to give everyone who donates so much of their time a break over the festive period. We reopen on Thursday 3rd January with service resuming on Monday 7th January.

In light of our closure, we want to help our service users prepare for the two week period over Christmas and New Year. There’s a lot of excitement and activity around this time of year, however it can be quite challenging when health and social care services run limited services. So it’s best to plan ahead and to be prepared.

The following numbers are useful to keep handy:

Emergency Social Work: 0800 731 6969

Crisis Centre: 0808 801 0414

NHS 24: 111

It’s important to take as many steps as you can now so that you, your friends, and your family are safe and well over this winter break. We have some tips to help you be prepared and plan ahead for winter conditions below.
