WALSINGHAM HOUSE CLOSURE

Jan 31 2012

It is with great sadness and regret that we have to announce that the Trustees and Management of St James Priory have been forced to make a very difficult but considered decision to close Walsingham House with effect from 6th January 2012.

This decision is a consequence of a debilitating reduction in referrals. Since October 2011 we had  only 1 referral and from November we had no clients at all in the service. The resultant lack of funding ensured that we were unable to achieve our break-even financial  targets and  in the closure of a valuable resource for people with addictions.

We remain committed to continue working with vulnerable people and are exploring ways in which to do this with the Walsingham House building.

St James House (Supported Housing) will not be affected and will continue to operate.
