What An Achievement!

By Ian Stirk | Project Leader

The initial aim of our project was to raise £3,600 to reduce the waiting list for therapy for young people in and around Bedford suffering from anxiety and depression. Thanks to your incredible generosity we have smashed our target and raised approximately £22,700 enabling 125 young people to receive therapy, significantly improving their life chances.

This has been achieved by enabling Bedfordshire Open Door, amongst other things, to extend their opening hours to include Saturday afternoons; Offer one off Drop-in counselling sessions; Recruit six new counsellors and widen expertise within their team. 

You’ve made a real difference to the lives of young people desperate for therapy and told they’d have to wait.

Thank you.
