Take A Minute Appeal

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving when everyone is invited to do something to support good causes. This year it falls on Tuesday 3rd December and we are using the day to officially launch our Take A Minute Appeal in homes and schools throughout Essex and East London.

With your help, we are aiming to round off our 35th anniversary year and go forward into 2020 by raising £35,000 to support our work improving the emotional health and well-being of children and young people.

We know that roughly three children in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health condition. We are there for those children and young people when they need us – to listen to them, support them, counsel them, guide them and nurture them.

We know that the support of a child therapist can have a huge impact on a child’s positive development: emotionally, academically and socially.

We have staff trained to help children and young people who have experienced loss, bereavement, anxiety, low self-esteem, bullying, depression, aggression, domestic violence and other emotional health related issues.

We also know that incredible things happen when you believe in children and every day we witness the amazing resilience, strength and potential of the children and young people with whom we work.

Small Envelope - Big Difference

In the last few weeks, we have sent out thousands of small Take a Minute Appeal envelopes to homes and schools and we are asking if you can help support our work by making a donation.

Even a small amount will go a long way in helping us continue our vital work and every pound donated really will make a BIG DIFFERENCE.

If you are involved with a school, club or group and wish to use our envelopes, then please email Libby to request these and we will send them out to you right away.
