We offer support to people who are experiencing difficulties in their relationships and want to sort things out. Whether this is arguing, an affair, loss of interest in sex, taking each other for granted, communication difficulties, lack of time for each other or something else


We’re there for people when they need us, which could be any time of day or night. People talk to us for as long as they like, as many times as they like. There are no waiting lists, and no assessments.

Stand To Ex-Forces Service

STAND TO is an alcohol service dedicated to Derbyshire’s Ex-Forces community. We cover the whole of Derbyshire. At STAND TO our dedicated, experienced and highly trained staff, volunteers and peer mentors (most of whom themselves are ex- forces), have a particular awareness of the issues veterans and their families may experience. We also understand some of the challenges individuals may face in admitting alcohol is a problem and the conflict often felt in asking for support. Get in touch for an informal chat.
