For the past year the SARSVL Steering Group has been developing a completely new support service for Leeds, and, as the first stage, a telephone helpline has now been launched.

The helpline number is 0113 2021844 and opening hours are Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 6pm – 8pm, with plans to extend these in due course. There will be an answer phone on at all other times and callers are welcome to leave a message. Further information about SARSVL can be found at

Anyone wishing to volunteer for SARSVL or to make a donation should e-mail info.sarsvl[at]
