Services during Coronavirus closure

New enquiries – We’re here to help

Following government guidelines and the advice of our funders, our offices remain closed at present.

However we are still providing our normal services to the best of our ability during this period, and we welcome new enquiries.

If you would like support from Probe advisors and you are not registered with us, you can contact us in the following ways;

Make sure you give us your name and a telephone number or email address, so that an advisor can get back to you to discuss how we can help.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Remember the community shop at the Freedom Centre run by our partner organisation EMS is still open, providing food items in return for a donation (whatever you can afford). The shop is open Monday to Friday 11am to 3pm

We achieve this by helping local people into employment, providing training, creating sustainable jobs, encouraging new business start ups and undertaking extensive home security, environmental and youth inclusion activities (including extensive work with young people classified as Not in Education, Employment or Training [NEETS]).
