Hello from the SHEP team.

Welcome to the SHEP website.  We continue to work hard to keep our work and services going as best we can during this pandemic. This is a time for great community effort and solidarity. All our work continues, though our staff continue to work mostly from home, for the moment.  All of our training has been temporarily moved on-line. Our counselling and advocacy services remain open.

You can contact us on (021) 4666180.  Our head office is open only to those with appointments. We will keep things under close review and we look forward to the situation improving throughout 2021. Thank you for your continued support and your patience.  Jim Sheehan & the SHEP team
