Coronavirus - following the advice given by the Government, Trustees have decided to close the Goosecroft Centre for the foreseeable future. This means that there will be no classes, drop-in or gateway club. NHS individual clinics may still take place. Please feel free to telephone, email or call in if you need help with anything. We will try our best to help.
