Services we don't offer

There are many services Umbrella can’t provide. For example, we can’t fix your bike or help with the decorating. However, there are many healthcare and social services we get asked about which we think it’s worth mentioning we can’t deliver.

We don’t provide any of the following services, but we’ve mentioned where you might be able to get help.

Service Where to get help
Termination of pregnancy (abortion)

Umbrella can't carry out abortions, which must be carried out by a specialist. However, some of our clinics can refer people to specialist services if termination is something they're considering.
