We need your support

  •     In 2015-16 Time to Talk West Berkshire supported over 300 young people in need with over 2,000 free counselling sessions.
  •     Referrals to our service have doubled in the past two years and the demand continues to rise.
  •     At any one time there are typically 30-40 young people in need on our waiting list.
  •     We receive no government funding. All of our costs are raised through grants and donations.

We therefore need your support to maintain and grow this much needed service.

There are a number of ways you can help us.
