There is genuine concern over the effect the coronavirus pandemic has had on young people’s mental health, and the pandemic has made it harder for people to get the support they need. Even out with the pandemic, there are pressures put on our young people who frequently feel they are struggling alone with complex issues, which can feel overwhelming. Furthermore, due to long waiting times for services, many children cannot access the counselling help they need when they need it most.
S.M.I.L.E. Counselling provides a vital service that supports young people with mental health issues, delivering FREE counselling and support services to young people in West Lothian. However, this essential charity can only provide the support they do with generous and important fundraising and grants.
Supporting our community has always been integral to who we are, which is why we have chosen to fundraise for this fantastic local charity. We would be so grateful if you can help with a bit of support and if you wish to donate, you can do so at:
