First anniversary of London bombings

Marking the first anniversary

Help and support

Recently many people have contacted the centre for the first time. Many are concerned about a renewed state of anxiety as we approach the first anniversary of the London bombings.

We are very aware of the strength of feelings that may be evoked by the anniversary, the events being held in recognition of those who lost their lives and those whose lives have been effected by the experience.

If you feel it would be helpful to talk about your feelings, or if we can be of any assistance, remember that we are here to support you in any way we can.

Visit us - the centre will be open as normal seven days a week so please do feel free to visit us, just give us a call to let us know when you’d like to come.

The helpline will continue to be manned seven days a week with an answerphone service at night. However, over the anniversary period the helpline will be manned 24 hours a day from Wednesday 5th July – Monday 10th July inclusive.
