We support people affected by OCD to help change their lives for the better

Charity Registration No. 1154202

Story

After months of blood, sweat and tears, I've decided to take the plunge and try to run a marathon. I'm not sure I'll make it, but with your support and the fundraising hopes of a charity behind me, I might just crawl over the finishing line in one piece! This charity is one of two in the UK that helps OCD sufferers (like myself) to understand, accept and manage their illness. They are a lifeline for people who are traumatised at the time of diagnosis, and frightened and confused during the year-long wait for the NHS mental health system to kick in. They lobby the government on our behalf, put us in touch with others with OCD, provide advocacy for those in need. We owe them a great deal. Help me help them to continue their great work. S
