13 February, 2018 - by Órlaithí Flynn

Sinn Féin MLA Orlaithi Flynn has welcomed the ‘long overdue’ clarity from the Public Health Agency on the future of the Lifeline service.

The West Belfast MLA commented:.“Sinn Féin had sought this clarity to help provide reassurance to those who use the crisis service and the dedicated staff affected. Hopefully the news will help bring some comfort.

“I have been assured that there will be no disruption to the service and a dedicated project team will oversee the transition, Sinn Féin will continue to monitor any developments with this service.

“I would urge anyone in distress, please still call 080880 88000 to access Lifeline and remember that there is always hope. There is a whole range of supports and services in the community as well with great staff and volunteers willing to help. There is always someone there to listen and help.”
