With thanks to generous funding from a number of providers, we are able to run projects that can offer free support to individuals who are in need.
Children in Need has provided funding to support children, young people and their families affected by substance abuse in the family. This consists of both one-to-one counselling for the young person, and family counselling for the young person and their immediate family. If you think you would benefit from this support, please complete the referral form and return it to us via email. Do encourage others to do so too.
Parents and Supporting Hands
The People’s Health Trust is funding Parents and Supporting Hands (PASH), a fortnightly group for parents and carers of young people who suffer from mental health or behavioural problems. The parent-led meetings allow the group to learn from each other and professionals how best to support their children. Those who have attended so far have found it valuable to share experiences and look at things differently.Sessions are held on alternate Thursdays from 12 – 1:30pm
If you think you would benefit from this support, please complete the referral form and email it to us.
Young Londoners #ChangeThroughChoice
In addition to the knife crime funding, the Mayor of London’s Office has also provided funding to support children and young people aged between 10 and 21 years, and who are suffering from mental health issues, those at risk of exclusion and those involved in, or at risk of becoming involved in criminal activity. If you think you would benefit from this support, please complete the referral form and return it to us via email.
With thanks to the National Lottery, we will apply a whole family approach to tackling behavioural issues, violence and knife crime, working with young people aged 9 to 18, and their families in Havering. This is a five year project, and can support counselling for both the child, parents, and family as a whole. If you think you or a child in your school would benefit from this support, please complete the referral form and return it to us via email.
Knife Crime Awareness
With thanks to The Mayor of London’s Office, we were able to provide free counselling to young people and their families who are, or could potentially be involved in knife crime. As part of this, we went into schools to talk about knife crime, and the risks involved.
