A Father’s Child Services CIC has considered current Government advice and our Birmingham office as well as our Evesham office will remain closed for 1-2-1 sessions until further notice.

We will update all clients as and when Government updates become available to change the current situation.  We will review the situation consistently and keep the website updated, once we have considered updated Government guidelines.

We are offering our Counselling and Mentoring services for those of you who do not already use them, via telephone or Video Conference facilities as a replacement for all face to face sessions.  This will be reviewed 07th May 2020 inline with the Government strategy.
