  • To provide a range of art materials/toys/games/books across the age ranges so the counsellors/ play therapist has a wider range of equipment to help support the therapeutic work particularity for clients who are not able to verbalise.

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.
