Please note that Clean Slate will be closed 21-12-2023 to 1-1-2024 for Christmas Break

This message is for anyone feeling lost, isolated or forgotten this time of year - you are not alone.  

Christmas bursts into our lives with twinkling lights, mince pies and endless carols. Yet we often forget our daily challenges do not just disappear when the first door of the advent calendar opens.


We understand that for many survivors the festive period can be challenging. There is an overwhelming expectation to be happy and a great emphasis on family. This idealist view of the festive season is sadly not the reality for some. Combined with the challenges we have faced over the last few years; it is understandable that you may be feeling more overwhelmed than ever this Christmas.


If you do, please remember, it is okay. Even if everyone else is dancing around in Santa hats, your feelings are still valid.  


Try to step back from the external pressure and expectations.

The kindest gift you can give to yourself at Christmas is to look after your own health and wellbeing.  


To all survivors & their loved ones this Christmas, we are always thinking of you.  

Wishing you all a safe and peaceful Christmas
