Unfortunately, we have had to take the very difficult decision to suspend referrals to our Edinburgh Adult Service that offers support for adult survivors across the City. With the ongoing coronavirus/COVID-19 situation and because of our limited staff capacity, we cannot provide support to new referrals in a timely way.
