How we will achieve our goals

The funding will help us create/decorate a minimum of 3 family rooms, enabling us to buy furniture and necessary materials such as arts/toys/games/books for our clients to use within the therapy. The rooms are also used by our advocates who work mainly with people who have a disability and the materials would greatly enhance the engagement/support.

Where the money will go

“I can’t thank each of you enough for all the work each of you has done with me over the years. When I first came to the centre for your help I was a really big mess and a lost cause. I never thought anyone could fix me, but then you guys surprised me and made me into the person I am today” Young person who accessed counselling/creative arts group.
