​Birthday Appeal

Help us to support more children in the region

Help us fund our new counselling suites & sensory room

Mental Health matters, especially so in children and young adults. We have seen a steady rise of referrals to our counselling and play therapies over the last year with parents reporting that children are having:

Low Mood
Grief and Loss
Eating Disorders
Bullying on Social Media
Self Harming

Yorkshire Children’s Trust have a dedicated counselling suite, but as we see a rise in referrals we need to extend our support options to enable us to have both availability and the correct type of therapies available for those that are reaching out our help.

This year we are asking for pledges on our Birthday JustGiving page:

As the charity reaches the milestone of its 10th birthday this month, we are very happy to have been offered new premises which will be available later this year, but we need your help to raise the approximately £30,000 we are going to need to furnish the new counselling suites, new sensory room and the teams office facilities.

It doesn’t matter if you can only donate a few pounds or if you can donate more, we promise that every penny raised in this appeal will be used to support the move to our new premises. So please dig deep and make a pledge to support our appeal in our birthday year.

We need your birthday donation pledge

lives of local children

Sensory Room

As we celebrate our 10th birthday, we can think of nothing better to ask for help with but a donation pledge towards our birthday appeal.

Our new premises will have two counselling rooms, one of these will be tailored towards younger children who benefit more from play therapies, with the second counselling room being tailored for older children and young adults.

With an adjoining specialist sensory room we will also be able to cater to children who have additional sensory needs, allowing us to expand our scope of support significantly to local children.

What if I have a child that needs support?

We are here to help. Despite our new premises not being ready until later in the year. We have a counselling suite in our existing premises and we are able to offer a tailored support package to help support your child. 

This may encompass counselling, play therapies or CBT and our NCS registered counsellor is here to support your child with positive outcomes.
