SAGE Counselling is passionate about reaching the wider community and informing the public of our charity and the invaluable work we do. We are fundraising for the cost of producing professionally printed information leaflets, along with stationary and postage to distribute the leaflets and for use in general administration. SAGE Counselling delivers up to 800 hours of voluntary counselling sessions a year to people with mobility issues who are unable to access other counselling services. We operate throughout WEST SUSSEX. We travel to the clients home, place of residence, hospital or hospice. The information leaflets are used to publicise SAGE Counselling in all public areas including libraries, town halls, GP surgeries, social services, mental and community services.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We are passionate about getting our service to as many people who need it and to do this we need to pay for professionally printed leaflets to distribute throughout West Sussex for publicity purposes. Many people as they get older or who are younger with mobility issues find themselves more isolated and with reduced financial means. Their mobility issues mean they are unable to attend NHS counselling or afford the commensurate rate of high street counselling charges. During counselling clients can find new ways to view their life issues, become more proactive in their own health and well-being, make more connections to reduce isolation, learn how to change and maintain their mental and physical health and become more engaged in the local community. Without SAGE Counselling many of the people we see would not get the help they need.
Steps to get it done:
SAGE Counselling operates throughout WEST SUSSEX All our counsellors are volunteers who give their time and expertise freely to help those in need. We also provide fully supervised placements to student counsellors in their 2nd year of a recognised training course where they will gain invaluable experience to complete their training. Many students stay with SAGE Counselling offering their time and expertise as trained volunteer counsellors while developing their own careers.
