Weʼre raising £5,000 to Help fund our community mental health service. We believe that Counselling should be acessible to all and when you need it most.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Hello ! We are Counselling in the Community. We are a not for profit counselling service based in the heart of Blackpool. Our aim is to make counselling accessible to all.There are 8 of us there, myself and 7 amazing volunteer counsellors, all of whom offer something different. Blackpool is well-known for its tower, golden mile and rock, however what is not so well known is it also features very highly in the 'Deprivation' leagues created by the Office of National Statistics. It has the highest usage of anti depressant in the country, along with some truely shocking mental health stats. We based ourselves in one of the poorest wards in England so we could reach out to the community. We are not surprisingly getting busier week by week and running costs keep escalating and that is why we find ourselves on JustGiving. If you can please help us.
Thank you for getting this far

About the fundraiser
We are a very small service but growing week by week. Unfortunately we are not able to be at our centre all week as we have to work elsewhere. We would love to cover more hours there and help more people. We have a lot of missed calls with no message which is very upsetting.🙏
