Your Christmas Care Plan

Welcome to your festive safe space

We are so glad you are here. 

Christmas isn’t always the picture perfect time of year we are sold through ads and films. It can be a real tricky time of year for a number of reasons – be it grief, loneliness, addiction and more. These issues don’t stop on December 25th.  

Here at Hector’s House – we don’t want to you to feel you must be jolly and thankful during the festive season. We want, and need, you safe and well. This is your safe space during the Christmas period. You are allowed to feel your true feelings. You are allowed to have a pretty sh*tty day. Just because it’s Christmas, it doesn’t make our troubles go away. We understand that. We see you. You are always welcome here. 

Take a look below at some of the resources available to you to help keep yourself safe and well this Christmas. You matter greatly to us.
