I don't want to attend my service or group anymore. What can I do?
It is up to you if you want to access our services. If you don't want to use our service, come to a group or want to stop treatment, just tell us.
This will not affect any services you may need in the future.
We will follow up any concerns we may have about abuse or neglect of clients, carers or children.
Why have I been refused a service?
We may refuse to provide a service if you are not eligible for that service.
There are times when we may have to cancel your service. This may happen if you have caused distress to other clients, staff or volunteers.
