We provide counselling for
For the past five years, Time to Talk Bucks has been funded by Buckinghamshire County Council which has done all it can to support the service. Unfortunately, this contract finishes at the end of March 2019 and although we have tried to secure other sources of funding to continue the service it has not been possible to raise enough to ensure the current level so we have reluctantly taken the decision to close. We are therefore unable to accept any further referrals.
