A short film, directed by two local young people, about the work of The Abingdon Bridge is available to view here.
Sarah Field is a local woman who knows about and supports TAB. She has got a place in this year's New York Marathon taking place in November and is seeking sponsorship for her run. The funds raised will help TAB in its work with young people. As Sarah has written:
"They are a group of amazing counsellors who provide young people between the ages of 13 - 25 with awesome help and advice across a whole heap of different topics. The team who provide 1-2-1 care and support, have also built workshops regarding self-care and the risks around influences from social media.
I think it's really important to help young people navigate the world we constantly change, hence why I particularly value the work provided by TAB in my local community."

"All in all If I didn’t have the help and support of the Bridge I don’t know where I'd be; what I’m trying to say is that no matter what life throws at you with the right support you can have a good quality of life so make the first move and pick up the phone."
