Don’t Lose Hope is a  charity that offers a professional counselling service for all  members of the community from age 4 upwards.   This is a free service for families/individuals receiving certain state benefits and affordable to all others. This service is delivered by a team of qualified and experienced counsellors, in private fully equipped counselling rooms. We rely on fundraising to ensure we can maintain this service. We raise funds through our Café, and Gift Shop and also through Donations.
