Beacon House Ministries

Bacon House Counselling Service

We have been providing a much-needed counselling service for 8 tyears, for young people and adults with complex difficulties, who might not otherwise access mainstream therapies. This service is now at risk from lack of funding. Most of our client group as able to contribute little or nothing towards costs. Demand is high. £35,000 would enable us to see over 100 people per year, reduce waiting times and expand this vital service.
