Events

Accepting the Best Corporate Social Responsibility award at the biz4Biz Awards 2022.

 

To be recognised at the biz4Biz awards on 8th July 2022 was an absolute highlight for us. Nominated as finalists in several categories we were delighted to win the ‘Best Corporate Social Responsibility’ award sponsored by Airbus. We would like to thank our many funders who help keep our services going in both Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

Here is an article, from Insight magazine, featuring The Counselling Foundation and other winners.

Special thanks to all that attended, including Paul Seeby, Mayor of Broxbourne.

 

The Counselling Foundation was invited to attend the Cost of Living Crisis event run by Broxbourne Council for the local community to give practical advice and support for those in need.

Additionally, we have been added to the Cost of Living directory under Broxbourne Frontline, provided by Broxbourne Council.

Fundraising Opportunities

Whether you are challenging yourself to doing your first 5km run, undertaking your first marathon, hosting a coffee morning, supporting us while you shop, making a personal donation or you are a business who would like to make us your ‘Charity of the Year’, there are all sorts of ways that you could fundraise for us to help support the provision of mental health services and training for those who might otherwise not be able to access support.

Your amazing support is critical to the continuation of the service we provide to our communities. Donations you make go towards both our counselling services and contributing to equality of access to training for our marginalised communities.

You can choose to make a one-off donation or commit to monthly giving. Every pound makes a difference to our clients. Please get in touch if you would like to fundraise for us by contacting fundraising@counsellingfoundation.org

“I am now able to discuss my feelings and emotions with my counsellor and my close friends and have, to a large extent, stopped burying uncomfortable feelings and memories”

“I am able to be less anxious in stressful situations”.

We are extremely grateful and appreciative to Borras Construction Ltd for nominating us as their chosen charity, alongside Youth Talk, to raise money via a gruelling hike they undertook on the Isle of Wight. 

This is down to one of their employees used our services during a very difficult time in his life. We believe that financial circumstances shouldn’t be a barrier to accessing counselling or emotional support.

Thank you to all who contributed to the fundraiser. Your donations have caused the fundraiser to surpass its £10,000 goal, which means that the money raised can go to those in need receive mental health support.

When you shop, instead of going directly to the retailer website, log onto easyfundraising first and click on the retailer you want to shop with. You will then be taken to the retailers website where you will shop as normal but the shop you are using will give The Counselling Foundation a donation. There are over 4,200 retail partners registered with Easyfundraising who will donate to us if you access their website through the easyfundraising website. What could be easier.
