Why we need your help
The Abingdon Bridge is supported entirely by donations, grants and voluntary contributions. Without this funding we would not be able to continue our important work. Last year (FY 2019-2020) it cost us £173,000 to run the service.
How your donations are used
Our counselling team work with over 200 different young people per year and on average our clients have 10 counselling sessions each. It costs us £40 to deliver a counselling session, so on average it costs us £400 per client.
We also support about 90 young people a year through our healthy lifestyles mentoring programme, and deliver educational workshops to over 1,000 students within local secondary schools. Their aim is to increase young people’s resilience around healthy lifestyles including drugs and alcohol and staying safe online.
