Thank you for your interest in making a referral to The Junction. Unfortunately as we’ve been experiencing such high demand on our services, we have made the decision to temporarily close our waiting list.

Our Open Access services are times we set aside where a worker will be available to provide support without an appointment:

Walk-In: Monday and Thursday 4-7pm

Drop-In: Wednesday 4.30-7.30 and Friday 1-4pm (Free shoulder massage available Fridays)

During these appointments we can also help you find alternative services for the kind of support you need.

As far as possible, we have the same worker(s) on the same day each week, who should be able to see you straight away or after a short wait depending on how busy the walk-in/drop-in is. Please arrive at least 30 minutes


We will update our website as soon as our Waiting List reopens. Thank you.
