Weʼre raising £10,000 to help fund counselling and mental health services for children in need
- Leeds and Harrogate
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
When our teenage son came home from school one day and declared that he was feeling suicidal our world was turned upside down. We received amazing help and support from his school and counsellors at the Oakdale Centre in Harrogate. We want as many others to benefit from this as possible and are raising money to create funds to enable those in need who can't afford to access these services. Just £750 enables us to help provide 8 week long courses in schools designed to help young people and if we can raise more than £5,000 we can get a counsellor designated to a school for a whole year.

This is one reason why we are doing what we are doing: waiting lists aren’t good enough and people need help right here right now. See this article on BBC news: Mentally ill 'spend months on hidden waiting list' (you might have to copy and paste the link, embedding it seems beyond me for now :) ): https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-50658007
