Councillor Zahid Chauhan, Oldham Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care, said: “I’m proud that we’ve partnered with Togetherall to provide much needed support for Oldham residents. It’s been an undeniably tough time during the Covid pandemic which has put a strain on many people’s mental health. That’s why Oldham Council has paid for all of our residents to access this support service completely free of charge.
“Nobody should have to struggle alone and this service will enable people to get 24/7 mental health support and advice from a like-minded community. There are no waiting lists or hidden costs, just no judgement anonymous support for you whenever you need it.
