Counselling Bursary

Can you help a child to receive the support they need?

Sadly due to increasing demand and government funding cuts more and more children experiencing trauma and mental health issues are not receiving the treatment they so desperately need.

This national trend is reflected in our waiting lists.  Despite Fegans doubling the amount of children supported in the last six years there are still too many children waiting to be seen by our qualified counsellors.  We believe every child deserves the right to access therapeutic support regardless of their financial circumstances.

Fegans’ Counselling Bursary has been created to address this issue.  Please help us to reach every child who needs us, as quickly and safely as we possibly can.

Support us

Fegans works with people, from all social backgrounds, faith and ethnic groups.

Many of the children we see will be:

– From financially challenged backgrounds

– Assessed by their GP as significantly struggling emotionally or mentally

– Suffering from physical health challenges (eating disorders/self-neglect)

– Socially isolated and already struggling to engage with their peer groups

– Likely to have suffered significant trauma or life disadvantaging events

– Have suffered some form of abuse

– Unable to access private therapies due to prohibitive costs

You can make a real difference.
