We want young people in our community who need help and support to have access to this when they need it most and not have lengthy waits

by Relate Chesterfield & N. Derbys in Chesterfield, England, United Kingdom

Not just marriage guidance....

Relate Chesterfield and North Derbyshire have been supporting people in the local community for over 40 years.  Some people know us best as marriage guidance specialists, but we are so much more than that.  We support children as young as 5, families, couples and individuals.  We help with a wide range of issues that impact on relationships with yourself and people around you including mental health, bereavement, domestic violence, communication problems, sex therapy and much much more.  

Time to talk not wait......

Our aim is to support people in the best way we can and as quickly as possible, without lengthy waiting lists.  After so many phonecalls from parents, teachers and GPs desperate for help for children and young people, we have set up our own counselling service for 11-18 year olds.  The sessions are run by experienced Relate children and young people's counsellors and at the moment we can see young people within a week or 2 for their first appointment.  At present we are having to make a charge for this service, but with the help of this project we are hoping to be able to see as many children and young people free of charge as possible.  

Donations will start helping 11-18 year olds straight away......

All donations will be used solely to fund these appointments and we plan to grow to meet the demand so that waiting times are kept to a minimum.  Our first target would mean we can support 20 children/young people through a course of counselling.

Let's make 'Free counselling for 11-18 year olds' happen
