Services at ACCORD

Gleniffer Outreach

Gleniffer Outreach is ACCORD’s information and support centre for patients and families affected by a life limiting illness. The Centre provides a quiet and calm environment encouraging people to drop-in at any time. Whether you have a specific need, require access to information or signposting to other services, each individual will be met with a warm supportive welcome by our experienced staff and volunteers. The Centre is also a valuable resource to other Health and Social Care professionals.

Aims of the Service

  • To encourage people to seek up-to-date and appropriate information and support
  • To enable patients to live well and manage the life changes their illness may bring
  • To function as a social area where patients / clients ‘moving on’ from other services can attend for planned therapeutic support

What You Can Expect

Over a friendly cup of tea, we will support and guide you to browse our available information or signpost you to the most appropriate services.
