Family Counselling Trust provides quality, low-cost early intervention counselling for children aged 4-18yrs and their families on low incomes across Somerset. Families are provided with online and/or face-to-face counselling, assessment and support where they are unable to access any NHS or other treatment. COVID has triggered an exponential mental health crisis in children and young people. This grant would enable us to expand this often life-saving service to ensure we can accept more referrals, reach more children, and improve their futures. Many families with children needing mental health support are struggling right now, please help us make their lives happier!
