Who is the Drop-in for?

The Drop-in is a service that Winston’s Wish started in January 2013.  It is open to anyone who would like to find out more about us and the services we provide or would like to meet with other people in relation to a bereavement. We also welcome individuals/families from outside of these locations/areas who wish to make the journey to meet with us.
