Support Services


Platform 1 recognises that many things can contribute to causing your mental health to deteriorate. Some of these things can be the practical things in life. When you are at your lowest point it is difficult to sort out things such as paying bills or making phone calls.

Our welfare service will help people to fill in forms, sort housing and benefit issues, make doctors appointments and if needed act as an advocate when the person needs to attend a meeting. This service is open to all the people that use our service.
