Following the recent developments regarding Covid-19 Ashton has taken the decision to review all service delivery. Sadly, this has meant that we have had to close all of our buildings as of Tuesday 24th March for the foreseeable future. This includes delivery of all face to face services and training programmes. This decision was taken to ensure the safety of our staff, sub-contractors and most importantly those we work with.

All our staff teams have now re-located and are working from home and we continue to provide services from the safety of their homes. We will continue to look at innovative ways of continuing to support you, our community and make our services and support as accessible as possible.

As a community focused organisation, it is challenging for us to have closed our doors, but the critical and lifesaving message is about Staying Home and Staying Safe, this is an essential move for us to make at this time and presents us all with challenges. Our doors will re-open as soon as it is safe for us all to do so.
