Sorry for the lack
of communication with everyone recently! As you will hopefully know; we have
just moved our Belfast office from Philip House on York Street to lovely new
premises on Duncairn Gardens. The new address is Duncairn Studio’s, 40-44 Duncairn
Gardens, Belfast, BT15 2GG and our new telephone number is 028 9035 7820.
The office is
located above the Citizen’s Advice Bureau on Duncairn Gardens.
The new offices
provide a much more efficient and welcoming venue for training courses and our
support groups! Spaced over three floors, we have lots of lovely office space,
nice kitchens and a lift for access to two floors for those who need it. Our
top floor is where the support group meets, in a dedicated space. Already we
have had loads of positive feedback from everyone who has attended the office,
either for meetings or a support group and we hope that continues!
moving office at short notice does tend to cause some disruption, especially
for our helpline and email connections. If you have been trying to contact us
and have been unsuccessful, we are truly sorry. Our helpline will remain on the existing
number of 08451 20 29 61.
We all thank you
for your patience during this time and we look forward to many happy years in
our new building. I would also like to introduce you all to the newest members
of the Aware team – meet Bruce Grainne and Sheila James, (our fish) who bring
good feng shui to the building and provide hours of entertainment!
