Community Fundraising

We want to make sure that our services are available to everyone in the community who need us most.  We actively seek funding support to subsidise the vulnerable and disadvantaged who are unable to pay.  Funding and supporting The Counselling Partnership will enable our volunteer counsellors to maintain the high standards required by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and promote our service to those who are least able to afford it.

Every penny raised makes a huge difference to a small charity like us.  If you are interested in joining in our fundraising efforts – be it by running, baking, swimming or any other creative activity – please get in touch by emailing info@thecounsellingpartnership.org. We would love to hear your fundraising ideas and suggestions.

As a Donor

We depend on charitable donations from individuals, organisations and grants to allow the charity to function and support the individuals who seek support. We are grateful to all those that support us.
